Description

Oskoz and Elola argue that the advent of digital social tools has, to some extent, blurred the lines between reading and writing and has redefined literacy practices as being both collaborative and public. After defining collaborative writing and arguing for its central role in the L2 classroom, the authors examine current research on L2 collaborative writing, which is informed mainly by sociocultural and activity theories.
