This presentation will assist educators with establishing "The cloud workshop model" as a tool to engage students in the the full process of writing from concept development to STEAM competency-based final product. By employing a variety of web-based and cloud technologies, educators not only can support student learning in real time to capture the collaboration and valuable feedback in workshop engagement, but also establish a more personal communication by using technologies. Through a series of formative and summative experiences, ranging from synchronous collaboration to small group editing on the web, students will shift their mindsets from passive students in the classroom to authentic writers and creators. Projects will reveal the deep process in approaching the various methods of critiquing student writing and the tools to support it. Overarching questions that we aim to engage are: How does an educator get students to authentically embrace and own the title of writer? How can you use cloud technologies to support the creative writing workshop? How can you value the importance of collaborating and creativing by systematically dismantling the constraints of class time, and 21st mindset? How is more experiential learning possible while maximizing 21st century learning tools,group theory and process-based outcomes?
