    Abstract:
    Peer review among graduate students is stuck in the pre-digital age. This project will pilot a new approach to graduate student writing that maximizes the strengths of both social networks and online writing environments with the intended goal of using interactive technology to re-imagine the contours of graduate education. The proposed Social Paper (SP) tool will be a free, open-source, ready-to-use networked writing environment that allows scholars to disseminate and receive feedback on works-in-progress among colleagues and the public. This online platform will enliven graduate work by using robust feedback mechanisms to generate networked discussion around student writing. In addition, the platform will allow students to keep a working portfolio of all writing and an accessible, dynamic archive of feedback from both peers and professors. The startup phase will culminate with a prototype which will be tested across a number of academic communities.
    Notes:
    Development of a free, open-source online writing tool that would allow scholars, students, and teachers to share and receive feedback on works-in-progress from colleagues and broader audiences. The tool would be incorporated into the Commons-In-A-Box software platform, and would allow users to keep an online portfolio of their work.
