Education always bridges the student from the known to the as of yet unknown. Before we learn to decode the written thoughts of others, we might stop to learn to put our own thoughts to the written word. Learn how digital media can facilitate students’ original composition on a variety of levels ranging from putting letters and grammatical components together into words to putting words together into thoughts on their way to understanding the compositions of others.
