Dissertation (Pre-Thoughts...)

Of some things I'm sure (or fairly so): I want to follow through with an idea that speaks to formal writing (traditions) coupled with new media writing methods (blogs, text-messaging, email, wikis, etc.) and discovering ways to make the new reinforce the old. My reality is that traditional-aged students must learn the conventions (we haven't moved that far from the prescriptive product just yet) and that I, as an educator, must find ways to help them do that. Well, why not tap into tools that they already know how to use to make that happen?

More later...

Great point Roberta. Your thoughts are really related to the idea of "Technoloical Natives" and Technological Immigrants" we read about. Thanks for the connection.
