04/29/2008 - The Pew Internet & American Life Project in conjunction with research partners at the National Commission on Writing (an initiative of the College Board), recently released a report titled Writing, Technology and Teens that looks at the impact of technology across the social and academic writing of teens.

Amanda Lenhart, senior research specialist with the Pew Internet Project, and Richard Sterling, chair of the National Writing Commission's Board, 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. They expanded on many of the findings of the report and connected them to broader concerns about education and writing today. To listen to the show, download the audio file on the show's Web page on the WAMU site.
