This book is designed for writing teachers who teach in online environments - primarily networked computer labs and the Internet - and for writing teachers who would like to teach in such spaces. All the contributors write from their own teaching, research or administrative experience, and all tell their stories in a rich theoretical context that will allow readers to see the relationship between theory, context and practice. The chapters serve as descriptive guides to new teaching practices to help the reader find ways to use online activities to further their own pedagogical goals within their own specific contexts.
