[edit] Project description

NWP's "Digital Is" is nationwide initiative to create and disseminate new classroom practices that use digital media to teach young people how to write. Established in 2008, "Digital Is" enables local writing project sites across the country to conduct workshops and develop resources for teachers in all 50 states.
