Abstract

Technology is transforming how the language arts are taught. The language arts curriculum, designed and developed over the years, includes the content areas of reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and visual expression. The transformation currently underway has been fueled by the enormous growth of the World Wide Web and educational software. Learning is no longer constrained by printed materials, as the language arts become more accessible across cyberspace. Electronic books from classical and contemporary authors are readily available. The application of theories and practices throughout the English-speaking world are dispensed for real-time consideration. Students entering online writing communities examine the virtual works of peers in other states and other languages. Numerous sources of information support the development of a more literate population.
