Understanding the Writing Habits of Tomorrow’s Students: Technology and College Readiness
Abstract

Abstract:

This article reports on a study analyzing the digital skills of 91 low-income students enrolled in writing remediation. Findings suggest that technological demands widen the equity dimensions of the college preparation gap by aggravating the academic challenges remedial writers already face. Suggestions to support the compound literacy needs of 21st-century students are made.
