Abstract

Computers, which have often been touted as the revolutionary educational tools (or the language arts, are now beginning to receive mixed reviews from a variety of sources. In many cases, educators are stuck with expensively supplied computer-assisted learning laboratories and classrooms not knowing what to do with existing software or how to select sound software from the plethora of programs currently advertised in software catalogs. This article summarizes the results of current research in computer-assisted composition studies and provides suggestions for effective computer use and warnings concerning their limitations and misuse in the teaching of basic writers.
