Max Swisher makes a good point about "lolspeak", and his mom shows that his point is valid. To me, it shows that due to technology, we may be going through another evolutionary stage of language, in a manner of speaking, so it should be interesting to see how this resolves itself so that "lolspeak" is actually understood clearly by all. Interesting article.

Mikynsi Steffan's curator insight, February 18, 8:03 AM

There are so many benefits to bilingual education, one important aspect to think about when adcovating for bilingual education is how it benefits the brain. The article describes the function of the brain of a bilingual while speaking either language and how it serves as a mental exerecise. If bilingual education can improve brain function and control, why shouldn't it be implemented in schools everywhere?  In my opinion, the discovery of the benefits of bilingual education concerning the brain is very exciting and can revolutionize the way America approaches education, as a future educator I find this very thrilling but it also makes me very nervous. When I think about how beneficial bilingual education is and how it would improve education for all students, I also have to think about how I would need to prepare myself as a future educator. If I am advocating bilingual education as a future teacher, I will need to further my professional development so that I am capable of facilatating dual-language learning.
