5 Myths About Writing With Mobile Devices - Edudemic

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, May 22, 2013 9:28 AM

This article comes by way of @felixjacomino on ScoopIt. I really like this article, because it's main point is that people are trying to adapt old ways of writing to new technology. I believe the author, at some point, even points out that in education, it doesn't matter what software package a child learns as long as they learn technology and the basics of how to use word processing. I started out on WordPerfect years ago, and then had to adapt to Word 1.0 (what version are we up to now?). Same with CMS systems that I've learned in the past. People are always so stuck on knowing specific products in tech comm instead of realizing that if you know one software package, you can probably adapt fairly quickly to a new one if you are just shown the differences. That was definitely the case with my current position. 

 

But back to iPads and writing--I took copious notes on my iPad during the STC Summit, and wrote several long blog posts on my iPad as well. Yes, it was easier to type with a wireless keyboard, but that's only because I type very fast and legibility is important to me. It's a sensory thing for me.  I found that for basic writing tasks, I can use the iPad with ease, and that's the point of this article. No more excuses! Mobile is definitely an option.

“People learn at different rates. Some people seem to catch on to things in quick bursts of intuition; others grunt and grind their way towards comprehension. Quicker isn’t necessarily smarter and slower definitely isn’t dumber.” Educators all know this, yet our existing education system does very little to accommodate this reality.
