How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar

How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

Now that text talk is widely accepted as a legitimate form of communication, we are left wondering: Will text talk become our main form of communication in the future? Will the widespread use of text talk negatively impact the way we communicate? Or are we engaged in the creation of a colorful new language every time we text?

David's curator insight, January 4, 2013 1:24 PM

My thoughts:

This article talks about how texting and the new media age may not be as bad of a thing as it is hyped up to be. They have done studies that show the pros and cons. This article shows how although we are using shortcuts to write it is just a way of us adapting; yet people still continue to use proper grammar more often than not.

Apple TV vs Interactive Whiteboards in the Classroom | Instructional Tech Talk | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

"There have been several posts on the web discussing what makes the most sense to purchase for the classroom, an Apple TV setup or an Interactive Whiteboard. While it’s great to say one is better than the other, I would like to show you the differences between the two setups and break each setup down into categories to see which outperforms the other."

10 Reasons Why I Want My Students to Blog

10 Reasons Why I Want My Students to Blog | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

First of all, blogging is writing, 21st-century style, plain and simple. Blogging constitutes a massive genre. It comes in many forms, addresses myriad topics, and can certainly range in quality. For my money (which usually means free), blogging provides the best venue for teaching student writing. As bloggers, young people develop crucial skills with language, tone their critical thinking muscles, and come to understand their relationship to the world.
