    "Experts figure that kids today read and write even more than previous generations. And they do so in a broader and more complex environment - though not always in academic ways.""Mastering the technical aspects of multimedia tools is essential. And both reading and writing in the digital world demand a more collaborative approach, played out before an ever-widening audience equipped for rapid-fire feedback."
