In "Made Not Only in Words: Composition in a New Key," Kathleen Blake Yancey questions current definitions of writing. Is writing grammar, spelling, and words on paper? Is writing multimodal? Does writing include videos, audio, and graphics? According to Yancey, technology has led to the emergence of multiple new Internet genres - email, blogs, instant messaging and so on. And all of these genres include some type of writing that occurs outside of the typical classroom.
