Educational technology is nudging literacy instruction beyond its oral and print-based tradition to embrace online and electronic texts as well as multimedia (Holum & Gahala, 2001). Computers are creating new opportunities for writing and collaborating. The Internet is constructing global bridges for students to communicate; and, by changing the way that information is absorbed, processed, and used, technology is influencing how people read, write, listen, and communicate (Holum & Gahala, 2001). Technology can supply new and creative opportunities for the integration of language arts across the curriculum. Language is key to students' intellectual, social, and emotional growth; and, is a necessary means to learning in all disciplines.
