In June 2007, I presented at a two-day conference sponsored by the Tech Initiative of the National Writing Project. We were looking at the "teaching and learning of literacy in the 21st Century." Our friends at Inverness Research, Inc. are in the process of releasing several talking points related to our presentations and conversations. In general I'm concerned that their conclusions get the role of writing and technology reversed. Technology isn't a tool that allows you to write. Writing is one of the tools that we helps us to be higher-level users of the literacies that technology fosters. I will be writing more about the Inverness talking points in other posts here.
