Abstract

The neglect of digital writing in education limits student success. In secondary language arts classrooms specifically, writing digitally is a skill necessary to be proficient in college, as well as a life skill that transcends the classroom into students’ daily interaction with smartphones, tablets, computers, and the internet. The extensive research presented in this project will condense a scope of information that includes–but is not limited to–defining digital writing, strategic application of technology in language arts curriculum, and the range of results with regards to student success in reading and writing in relation to college and career readiness.
