In this much-anticipated book from acclaimed blogger Vicki Davis (Cool Cat Teacher), you’ll learn the key shifts in writing instruction necessary to move students forward in today’s world. Vicki describes how the elements of traditional writing are being reinvented with cloud-based tools. Instead of paper, note taking, filing cabinets, word processors, and group reports, we now have tools like ePaper, eBooks, social bookmarking, cloud syncing, infographics, and more. Vicki shows you how to select the right tool, set it up quickly, and prevent common mistakes. She also helps you teach digital citizenship and offers exciting ways to build writing communities where students love to learn.
· Essential questions at the start of each chapter to get you thinking about the big ideas
· A chapter on each of the nine essential cloud-based tools--ePaper and eBooks; digital notebooks; social bookmarking; cloud syncing; cloud writing apps; blogging and microblogging; wikis and website builders; online graphic organizers and mind maps; and cartoons and infographics
· A wide variety of practical ways to use each tool in the classroom
· Alignments to the Common Core State Standards in writing
· Level Up Learning--a special section at the end of each chapter to help you review, reflect on, and apply what you’ve learned
· Writing tips to help you make the best use of the tools and avoid common pitfalls
· A glossary of key terms discussed in the book
· Useful appendices, including reproducible material for your classroom
No matter what grade level you teach or how much tech experience you have, you will benefit from Vicki’s compelling and practical ideas. As she emphasizes throughout this essential book, teaching with cloud-based tools has never been easier, more convenient, or more important than right now.

To prepared to write this book I took the more than 60 different types of writing and tools I use in my classroom and put them on post it notes. I grouped them to determine the major categories of writing and related it to what you're already using.. I wanted this to be simple for any teacher to follow. There are nine basic categories of tools and sites to use and I think every 21st century school should use all nine.
In this book I will teach you how to select the right tool for teaching purposes, how to set it up quickly, and how to prevent common mistakes. I explain that it has never been easier, more convenient, and more important than right now. If you're tasked with writing across the curriculum and expected to use collaborative docs, blogs, wikis, Twitter and more, this book is for you.
Every teacher should include student writing. I hope this makes it easy for you to understand. Enjoy and reach out on Twitter @coolcatteacier if you need help.
