Computers and writing: models and tools
This collection reports on research and development in the field of computers and writing, including the design of computational models and tools to teach writing. The book reviews computational, cognitive and educational factors, written by researchers at the forefront of this area as well as practicing teachers already using writing software in the classroom. The volume focuses on the value of computers for writers, the use of computers to gain or develop writing skills, or the effect of computers on human writing processes. The chapters specifically address the following issues: how is writing software evaluated; will a machine complement, replace or interfere with a writing teacher; how are software writing tools developed; how are software writing tools accurately used; what new writing processes will people use when they use machines; can writing be modeled well enough to create worthwhile computer writing tools; where will these models come from; and can computer-generated text be of value in the classroom.
