An example of one way you might do this...
Hawisher, Gail E., and Selfe, Cynthia L. (1991). The rhetoric of technology and the electronic writing class. College composition and communication, 42(1), 55-65. In Silder, Michelle., Morris, Richard., and Overman Smith, Elizabeth (Eds.), Computers in the composition classroom: A critical sourcebook (pp. 35-45). Boston, MA: Bedford/St. Martin's.
Notice I did adapted APA style...do whatever works for you (however, I find it is VERY smart to keep full first names attached to your notes even if you are doing APA).
Summary: I'm not doing one; however, if you think this might be something you'll use for a thesis, dissertation, or during exams; a 2-5 sentence summary in your own words is VERY useful for the future.
A lot of publications about the "problems" of teaching with technology point towards the system (esp. teachers)--like slide above.
