The Role of Technology in Teaching Young Writers.
DerMovsesian, Christine Michelle
This study investigated what happened when the "Ultimate Writing and Creativity Center" computer program was utilized by four second grade students in an after-school writing workshop. The setting for this study was a public elementary school in a suburb of Philadelphia. The sample consisted of four students in second grade. The selection of students for this study was based on writing interest and ability shown in first grade. Two students were girls and two students were boys. The study found that using the "Ultimate Writing and Creativity Center" program with the students gave them ideas and motivation to write. The study found certain components to be very beneficial for these particular students and a few components to be more difficult for them. The "Ultimate Writing and Creativity Center" was found to be a very valuable writing tool for the students in this study. Suggestions are included for teachers who may want to use this computer program with their students. (Contains 18 references.) (Author/AEF)
