Abstract

This paper aims to discuss the design of an online collaborative writing platform for primary school students. With minimal face-to-face input from teachers, students went through process writing (a learner-centric learning approach with brainstorming, drafting, revising and publishing stages), and created their own storybooks with visual support, online scaffolds and communicative features using this online platform. Initial findings suggest that this writing platform can be an effective approach to improve students’ motivation towards English learning and writing skills. This paper also proposes that the Process Writing model can be used to facilitate students’ writing of different genres.
