Because Digital Writing Matter
by Danielle Nicole DeVoss, Elyse Eidman-Aadahl, & Troy Hicks
Back Cover Blurb:
"The connectivity of the internet and the latest digital technologies have opened vast new opportunities, format, and audiences for writing. Digital writing involves more than just word processing an essay or punching out an e-mail message; students can blog, text message, chat online, or create narratives for multi-media productions.
Based on case studies, interviews with educational professionals, and a decade's worth of research, BDWM offers proven strategies to equip students with the communications skills that will enable them to thrive in our information-rich, high-speed, high-tech culture."
I just received my copy of Because Digital Writing Matters today in the mail. As both a technology enthusiast and a member of the PBWP, I felt a need to read this book released by the NWP. I'm only about 30 pages into the book, but I;m already finding a lot of good points that the book raises.
