In spring of 2018, as part of a best practices pilot program, Imperial Valley College incorporated the use of individual laptops or Chromebooks in the community college English composition classroom. One hundred twenty-five students participated in the project and completed an exit survey at the end of the semester. By using in-class computers, students can experiment with composition and research strategies while receiving direct feedback from the instructor. Waiting for students to turn in typed drafts slows the instruction process. The expectation is students using in-class laptops or Chromebooks will be more engaged in the writing process, instruction will accelerate, and more time can be spent on improving student compositions and helping students reach college level expectations.
