Computers and Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics. ERIC Topical Bibliography and Commentary.
Smith, Carl B., Ed.
Virtually every aspect of modern life has been changed and shaped by the computer's tiny, ubiquitous silicon chips. It is not surprising that computers have had a profound effect on the way students learn in the modern classroom. This topical bibliography and commentary focuses on how computers can be used to enhance the teaching of language arts. It first discusses the features of common software programs, such as word processors and spell-checkers, and then moves into a discussion of how computers are used in the elementary classroom and in what ways they influence students' writing processes. Finally, the bibliography/commentary explores different types of technologies teachers use in the classroom and offers guidelines for their use. Lists 2 Internet resources and 12 references. (NKA)
