MixedInk pushes traditional boundaries by inviting students to incorporate language from their peers into their own writing, and to edit, comment on, and rate classmates' work. It also emphasizes student accountability by automatically tracking authorship throughout the collaborative process.
Originally intended to enable public participation in media and politics, MixedInk has been used by the White House, the Associated Press, Slate Magazine, and others. However, teachers quickly recognized the tool’s potential within the classroom and suggested ways it could be made more useful, which inspired this suite of educator-oriented features.
