#tcea14 - Writing Digitally Session Podcast and Materials @diben

As a writer who began using technology at age 13, I can't imagine writing without technology. Whether it was an Apple //e, a Palm handheld, a laptop, a Chromebook, an iPad, mobile phone or desktop computer, I have done 95% of my writing with technology. That's why I am baffled at the desire to force children to write by hand, to see technology as something that kids learn AFTER they've been made to learn to write by hand.
