The Process Writing Approach: Integrating Padlet and Web 2.0 Tools in the ELT Writing Classroom

Abstract

In the ELT classroom, the writing lesson is mostly regarded as a static, strict and solitary activity. On the other hand, out of the classroom, in the digital era, writing is active and interactive as it symbolizes free and critical thinking. In this article, an original writing lesson is synthesized underlining the power and the effectiveness of innovation in the writing class, through the integration of technology. The process writing approach is the basis for a lesson full of polyphony, autonomy and responsibility, enriching learners’ 21st-century skills. Simultaneously, Padlet (an online interactive tool) and current web 2.0 tools interweave this writing lesson and bring collaboration and multiple interpretations in a class where anxiety and stress are lessened.
