TR 57. Technological Indeterminacy: The Role of Classroom Writing Practices in Shaping Computer Use

By Cynthia Greenleaf

Summary: This study examines the integration of computers into a remedial high school English class. Greenleaf focuses on writing practices before and after computers were introduced, and concludes that the teacher's structuring of writing instruction had the greatest impact on student writing and the ways computers entered into writing. She argues that computers do not function as independent variables in classrooms, but rather as part of a complex network of social and pedagogical interactions. Winner of NCTE's Promising Researcher Award. January, 1992; 40 pages.
