Abstract:
This paper will comment on the effect of extended use of word processing as a tool for writing on school students' attitudes to writing and the theories they are building about writing. The theories of the students are considered in terms of preferred medium for writing, quality of product, and aspects of their writing behaviours. The likely validity of their theories is examined using both empirical data and the observations of teachers or parents.
