Whether working predominantly with deaf students or in more traditional classes of hearing students, ENFI’s pedagogical thrust was to encourage more writing in the writing classroom and, as Batson demonstrates, to develop student-centered writing classrooms. EnfiLOG aimed, as Batson describes it, to “proselytize” around this pedagogical innovation with networked computing rather than analyze the new systems of power/knowledge that were produced. Since those early years, new converts to networked-based teaching confess their technological baptisms at the computers and writing conference and are encouraged to move from rapture to critical engagement both with the technology and pedagogy employed.
