From the Current Issue:
The Evolution of a Digital Discipline
Kent Williamson, NCTE Executive Director and NCLE Director, writes, "A few decades ago, when the digital revolution was just beginning to influence education, it was not uncommon to read enthusiastic forecasts of what computers and online communication could mean for science, math, career and technical education, foreign language study, and the social sciences. But the prevailing notion at that time seemed to be that, except for embracing word processing, English and literacy studies wouldn't change much . . . As we can well see, that notion has turned out to be completely wrong." Literacy in Learning Exchange, January 29, 2014
