The purpose of this study was to demonstrate how technology enhances writing in the classroom. After conducting my research and analyzing my data I believe that word processors should be part of every classroom to support students, especially those who have motor skills issues, because the findings of my research indicate that students are more apt to write because the physical act is less difficult. The research required me to observe, interview, and survey teachers and students as they incorporated technology into writing. The results indicated that technology allows students to enhance their writing by adding more precise detail into their writing pieces and it initiates self revisions. By looking at all the data that was collected in my research I have made a conclusion that it is highly important to incorporate technology into the classroom while learning to write and while creating essays.
