Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing
More than any other “anchor” in either Writing or Reading, Rap Genius most obviously fits into this 21st century call for the application of technology in the writing process.
Producing writing online changes the way students write by allowing them to use rich media along with text, among other digital composition techniques.
Distributing writing online means that student writing is no longer restricted to the limited sphere of the 5-page paper (largely a dialogue between student and teacher) or the classroom, but part of a larger conversation, between students and their classmates, multiple classrooms, and even broader intellectual communities.
