Computer Writing Classroom
We are very fortunate to have a networked computer writing classroom in which to teach
some of our classes. If you are assigned to teach in these classrooms(J 203 & J-214)
you will need to familiarize yourself with the hardware and software.
The software, Daedalus Integrated Writing Environment (DIWE)
, is designed specifically for the writing classroom and involves students in the
processes of thinking and writing. We encourage teachers to use this classroom in
innovative ways that go beyond a collection of word processors.
Learning about DIWE
If you are teaching in this classroom you will need to review a copy of the Daedalus
teaching manual. You might also consider talking to other teachers working in the
classroom or consulting the online teacher support
