Evelyn Martens's curator insight, October 22, 2014 1:44 PM

Though the common core is not a focus of interest for me, I enjoyed reading how the author uses digital writing tools in both composition and literature courses. I think his observations and activities for informational reading are insightful and gave me some ideas about how I might use those tools in college composition. I particularly enjoyed his observations about the public perception of digital media:

“And yet the general public is not completely sold on the importance of using digital media in schools. That same Frameworks Institute report finds that many Americans see digital-media use as purely recreational, a distraction from the basics, a passive use of time, and even potentially dangerous. When the American public thinks about digital media, it seems, they envision potato-chip-munching miscreants laughing at viral videos of bullying on buses or bobbing their heads to the rhythmic thumping of a Korean rapper.”

It seems we still have a way to go to overcome negative public perception, and I think Malley is doing some good work on that score.
