State of the Art: How Computer Technology Can Help Your Child Write Well.
Morgan, Marilyn R. P.
Paths of Learning: Options for Families & Communities, n8 p6-9 Spr 2001
Computers can help young writers learn to write well. Exercises for developing ideas, such as freewriting, are easily adapted to computers and enhanced by hypertext and thesaurus functions. Grammar and spell checks make editing easier, and the ability to rearrange text facilitates writing out of order and revision. Changing formats and fonts, exploring multimedia, and creating hypertext documents encourage creativity. (TD)
