The Impact of Electronic Communication on Writing – Annotated
Whether one views these changes as positive or negative depends on how closely one believes writing should adhere to the conventions of formal writing we have hitherto accepted, and how much one supports the goal of establishing the student’s authority as a writer. Some writing instructors philosophize that since e-writing tools and e-language will continue to change, they must teach what will not change: the connection between thinking and writing and the ability to articulate what one knows (Leibowitz, 1999). This standpoint will certainly encourage teachers to continue seeking more effective ways of using the e-tools in writing instruction.
- To those of us who have worked with students as they publish for wider audiences, this line is extremely important. If we truly believe that students should write well, we should find a way for them to use the web to write frequently. – post by pjhiggins
