I read " The New Literacy" by Clive Thompson. What matters is students today can't write and that technology is to blame. Clive says, "Word and Power Point have replaced written essays, Facebook and texting have belittled word to abbreviations and not the full word." I think that Word helps students learn how to use the right formats and spell words right. Word, Power Point and Excel teach students about writing and using the right formats and how to spell. "I believe that technology isn't killing our ability to write it's reviving it."
