Synopsis:

Short Retail Description: With a combined twenty years of teaching in networked classrooms, the authors provide an introduction for students-and teachers-to new ways of analyzing and writing arguments with computers.

This writing guide helps writers develop a familiarity with computers and a sense of how various platforms and programs can help develop their argument writing skills.

With a combined twenty years of teaching in networked classrooms, the authors provide an introduction for students-and teachers-to new ways of analyzing and writing arguments with computers. Emphasizing rhetorical considerations and the writing process, not the technology itself, the text provides new methods for teaching writing with computers. The text maximizes the opportunities computers offer students to engage in the writing process with a sense of freedom and creativity. It encourages students to "play" with their own text, with their ideas and words, with written dialogue and polylogue. An approachable writing style makes the innovative content easy to understand.

Ideal for people who want to explore how various computer platforms and programs can develop their writing skills.
