The role of technology, Teaching-learning process, Writing skills


Writing is a constituent element of literacy. It is a daily practice that enables individuals to express their thoughts and emotions. The usage of technology improves writing skills in the classroom. Every day, new types of technology emerge, and educators must integrate these tools into the classroom. By integrating technology, instructors provide additional chances and ways to boost their students' ability to create more thorough and grammatically perfect essays. The current research represents an analysis of 20 studies that are interested in investigating the role and significance of technology in teaching the basic 'writing' skill of English. The study is based on studies conducted between 2015-2020. The literature review, therefore, begins from the latest study (i.e., published in 2020) up to the oldest one (i.e., published in 2015). The presence of technological tools may increase student motivation and engagement and allow them to revise and share their work with others. In addition, new technical instruments are redefining modern skills in writing. Finally, it is recommended that the implementation of technology in the education sector is important in order to enable educational institutions, teachers, and learners to benefit completely from keeping up with distance learning and the use of technology.
