This final section summarizes the main arguments of the book and provides insights for L2 educators and researchers who want to focus on L2 writing digital literacies. In this conclusion, we highlight that for L2 educators and researchers to address the rapid social and technological changes in this era, they need to understand that the possibilities provided by digital writing tools and digital genres are numerous, diverse, and always changing. It is imperative to explore with an open mind these communicative possibilities—not only to form L2 digital savvy communicators, but also to enhance these L2 learners’ digital literacies.
