The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools

How have digital tools impacted the way student writing is taught in schools? It's a question that has animated the folks at the Pew Internet & American Life Project and it is the subject of this timely paper by Kristen Purcell, Judy Buchanan, and Linda Friedrich. These researchers interviewed 2,462 Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers to talk about how everything from social media to the Internet have transformed the experience of teaching writing. The 114-page report can be viewed in its entirety or visitors can also read highlights on the site as well. Policy makers and the like may wish to download the survey questions for a detailed look at the report's methodology. [KMG]
