Writing Centers in 2020--Gone!
Bateman, Thomas L.
Technology brought the writing center to life because of the word processor, but new technology is actually going to create robotic life that thinks with us, for us, to us. It will offer portability all from a microchip stored in a coat pocket. Technology will continue to expedite today's hurry up world, and this will carry over into the writer's world. The demand for instantaneous feedback provided by a computer that can out-think any one human tutor coupled with the complete portability of a computer, fax machine and telephone all carried on a belt loop will eliminate the functional use of a writing center. Contains 13 references. (EF)
