Changes in Writing

When is the last time you bought stationary and a stamp, wrote a letter, and then sent the letter to someone through the mail? For me, it’s been a very long time. With the use of technology and the Internet, I can send emails in order to communicate in a much faster and more convenient way. For example,  I am  able to keep in touch with friends and relatives who live great distances away from me through email. On a positive note, this change in writing has helped me increase my communication with friends, family, and educators.

In the education world, writing is also changing with use of technology and the Internet. Teachers are using Blogs in order for students to communicate their ideas. Will Richardson says, “Students can write about personal reactions to topics covered in class, post links, write reflectively, and summarize on annotate readings.”  Instead of using the traditional paper and pencil for journaling and free writing, they can use Blogs to do so.   The possibilities truly are endless.  

This site is a great resource for teachers who are looking for ways to use technology with their students in order to improve writing skills.
