Texts, Technology, and Thinking: Lessons from the Great Divide.
Klein, Perry D.; Olson, David R.
Language Arts, v78 n3 p227-36 Jan 2001
Examines four different levels of development constituting writing as a technology for thinking. Discusses evolution (what speech affords thinkers), history (how text changed the collective construction of knowledge), ontogeny (how literacy affects the development of mind), and microgenesis (how writing facilitates thinking from moment to moment). Argues electronic technology changes students' learning much less than is generally thought. (SR)
