Students Returning to Schools Committed to Technology
A very fair article in the NYTimes about the use of technology in writing classes. The article (quoting people such as David Bloome, president of NCTE) puts in a good word for revision, peer review, audience-centered writing, and less teacher-centered classrooms, all of which, it suggests, can be furthered through the introduction of technology. It even mentions wikis and blogs. :)
This NYTimes article is entitled "Can Johnny Blog?" and provides links to several sites through which schools can provide their students with blogging space. Also looks at resources for online research.
