Yesterday I watched our ESC tech person use his Iphone to order baseball
game tickets, watch part of a ballgame, and deposit a check into his
checking account--even took a photo of it. (My cell phone is ancient--I
get the hand-me-downs in my family.)  But I'm thinking about not having to
write checks....
Today I read an interesting submission from the Read/Write list to which I
subscribe. The message was this:  "I am interested in literacy practices
related to online reading and writing tasks such as online job
applications; driver license applications; paying bills online; and
searching for, judging the quality of, and interpreting health
information."  The writer, David J. Rosen, continued, "Colleagues, if you
are teaching, do you know what kinds of online documents your students are
reading or writing?  Are they asking you for help (in finding, judging the
worth of, or interpreting) these documents, to complete online forms?  Do
you think teaching how to read and write online is now part of a literacy
or basic skills teacher's job?"
What a challenging question--and one which I'm leary of embracing. 
However, it might be interesting to discuss in a few days.
