    This is a great lesson plan to help students use online graphic organizers for their writing pieces using Kidspiration.  It includes various teaching and learning strategies so that the students can tailor the final product in a way that makes sense to them.  The students can use a web that they feel works best for their writing piece.  The peer reviews are a great way to promote socialization as well as help with editing and revising. This lesson addresses ISTE standards like Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Decision Making, and Creativity.  I like that this lesson can be done in the classroom or exclusively online.

Technical Remarks: could also be used as it has free Graphic Organizers and gives examples of different webs to use for different writing pieces.

This lesson gives students exposure to a new technology that will aid in the writing process. Students brainstorm and collaborate online with peers to generate ideas. This lesson builds on skills needed to be successful in the 21st Century workforce. 

Technical Remarks: would be a free alternative to Kidspiration.
