Online tools and resources allow students to gather and evaluate information efficiently, then communicate their thoughts and findings. Technology creates opportunities for students to do meaningful work that has value outside school, receive feedback on their work, and experience the rewards of publication or exhibition. Technology provides a widespread audience for students' work. Computers link students to the world, provide new reasons to write, and offer new sources of feedback on ideas ( Peck & Dorricott, 1994 ).
