Abstract:For computers to be useful in writing instruction, innovations should be valuable for students and feasible for teachers to implement. Research findings yield contradictory results in measuring the effects of different uses of computers in writing, in part because of the methodological complexity of such measurements. Yet the computer seems to be a promising tool in several new, theoretically based approaches to writing instruction. Research of these kinds of computer applications should continue, paying attention to context variables that influence the implementation process importantly.
