The Impact of Digital Tools on  Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools - Kristen Purcell, Director of Research, Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project; Judy Buchanan Deputy Director, National Writing Project; Linda Friedrich  Director of Research and Evaluation, National Writing Project. july 16, 2013.

“In a survey of Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers, a majority say digital tools encourage students to be more invested in their writing by encouraging personal expression and providing a wider audience for their work. Most also say digital tools make teaching writing easier, despite an increasingly ambiguous line between formal and informal writing and students’ poor understanding of issues such as plagiarism and fair use.”
