Talking about teens, writing and technology on NPR

Last week, the Pew Internet Project in conjunction with our research partners at the National Commission on Writing (an initiative of the College Board), released a report titled Writing, Technology and Teens that looks at the impact of technology across the social and academic writing of teens.

Today, Richard Sterling, the chair of the National Writing Commission’s Board, and I were guests on the Tech Tuesday edition of the Kojo Nnamdi Show, a Washington, DC based radio program produced out of a local NPR affiliate, WAMU. On the show, Richard and I had the opportunity to expand on many of the findings of the report and connect them to broader concerns about education and writing today. To listen to the show, download the audio file on the show’s webpage on the WAMU site.
