The potential for incorporating online composing within the composition classroom is about as sexy as comp studies can get. Michael Wesch’s fast paced, youtube video “The Machine is Us/ing Us” gives a taste of the possibilities of finding information on any and all topics in the world while also connecting me with anyone on the planet. All of which, I see as having a guaranteed lasso-effect on student motivation and investment since surfing and interacting online is this generations soda-shop hangout. But I don’t necessarily agree with Lundsford’s determination in “Clive Thomspon on the New Literacy” that the writing students are already doing online is academically skillful. I rather agree with Wiz1764 who posted a comment noting a number of elements missing from his students, regardless of their online usage.
