AbstractThe project team is developing a prototype of InfoWriter, a Web 2.0 concept mapping tool and writing environment to support students in writing informational and explanatory texts. The product will be used in middle and high school English Language Arts classrooms, and others as appropriate, to supplement traditional writing assignments. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, teachers are able to provide feedback via the platform and integrate it within the classroom environment, and that students are engaged with the prototype.
