Brian Croxall
Issued Date: 4 Feb 2014

Abstract


When introducing new technologies into the writing classroom, one runs the risk of producing “tool fatigue” in students, who can become overwhelmed by writing in different environments. With careful design and introduction of an assignment, however, instructors can help their classes avoid the pitfalls that come with innovative projects. Building from an experience with a failed assignment, this article outlines best practices for helping students and assignments succeed when writing with digital technologies.
