1992 was a breakout year for technology in the classrooms. Today with the internet these same methods are being practiced at a much cheaper rate. Because technology is so popular among children they move at a much faster pace so technology can change with them so they will not get board with the same applications. It is a shame that test scores do not reflect the comprehension benefits from these activities.
I can see issue with the way that people write in blogs. Most texts online that you read are incomplete. They often use slang similar to the way that people text message. This causes everyday language skills to go out the window.
The other issue is that most writings are rambling and have no direct points.
