Every idea can improve with feedback. Students in every classroom need virtual spaces to share their ideas and the media products they create to "show what they know and can do." A variety of different websites and apps can be used to facilitate student interactive writing, with teachers moderating both posts and comments. Whether students have individual logins or the teacher serves as the "funnel and publisher" of digital content, interactive writing platforms can become "digital portfolios" of student work and provide a mechanism to share student work with a larger audience.
