Teens and Writing Skills

Check out this study that was recently conducted on the impact of technology on teen writing.  The Stanford researcher who conducted the study says that our kids are not only not getting worse, she posits that we are actually entering into a literacy revolution. Our kids write more today than they ever have in history.  One important skill they seem to be excelling at is the ability to match their writing with appropriate needs and interests of their audiences.  That means that every time our kids post something on their Facebook page, write a blog, or send a text, they may actually be increasing their communication skills.
