The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools | P... - 23 views

  •  
    Asked to assess their students' performance on nine specific writing skills, teachers tended to rate their students "good" or "fair" as opposed to "excellent" or "very good." Students received the best ratings on their ability to "effectively organize and structure writing assignments" and their ability to "understand and consider multiple viewpoints on a particular topic or issue." Teachers gave students the lowest ratings when it comes to "navigating issues of fair use and copyright in composition" and "reading and digesting long or complicated texts."

National Writing Project Responds to Writing, Technology and Teens National Survey - 0 views

  • Berkeley, CA, April 24, 2008—The National Writing Project (NWP) supports the findings of the new national survey, Writing, Technology and Teens, released today by the Pew Internet & American Life Project and the College Board's National Commission on Writing. These results reinforce findings from NWP's 2007 Survey on Teaching Writing (PDF), which confirmed that the American public believes good writing skills are more important than ever. The NWP survey also found that teachers and parents believe computers and other new technologies have a more positive than negative effect on helping students develop strong writing skills.
  • "As writing skills have become more important than ever in this age of e-mail, instant messaging, and texting, NWP teachers are keeping up with the times by using technology to improve their students' writing abilities."
