  • ELizabeth Pandolfo-Briggs


This article addresses a subject rapidly becoming a major issue: technology and children's literature. This pairing may conjure up different images in your minds, so this article examines how technology is changing how we teach children's literature at the university level. In particular, it looks at text-based virtual spaces called MUDs (Multiple User Dungeons/Dimension/Dialogue) and MOOs (MUD Object Oriented).
