I've been thinking along those lines, too and the current Basic Writing Discussion Group (online) is discussing the uses of technology with Basic writers.

I've been thinking lately that my students don't need to use every kind of technology in one course--for instance, I used a blog, emails and powerpoint projects with my Mythology students, and MS Word, Emails and cell phones with my Basic Writers.
And I've returned to basics with composition--for instance, we did a cubing exercise and then I asked them to scroll down to the botom of the page and copy and paste parts of the cubing into a coherent paragraph. So they had experience moving ideas around both intellectually and literally.
