The Digital Lives of Teens: Code Switching | Edutopia.org

The Digital Lives of Teens: Code Switching | Edutopia.org | Building a classroom community | Scoop.it

 

Recently, NPR launched a new blog entitled Code Switch to examine the "frontiers of race, culture and ethnicity." Blog host Gene Demby explains: "We're looking at code switching a little more broadly. Many of us subtly, reflexively change the way we express ourselves all the time. We're hop-scotching between different cultural and linguistic spaces and different parts of our own identities -- sometimes within a single interaction."

 

Daily, teens confront the challenges and opportunities of code switching in digital spaces, at home and at school. Code switching is not easy to do and can bring coping fatigue, confusion, missteps and distractions.

 

The rules of the game of digital engagement vary from one space to the next. At school, often no cell phone use is permitted during the school day. Yet the moment a student steps foot off campus, texting begins. Literally, the switch is turned on, and linguistic patterns shift to abbreviated, often indecipherable text-speak. Then, in the same breath, an adult approaches a teen -- maybe a parent, guardian or coach -- and the teen code switches from phone language to face-to-face conversation, utilizing a different set of speech patterns and tones.

 

In classrooms, code switching presents challenges in working with teens, who have a hard time moving out of established patterns of communication cemented at home and with peers outside of school. For example, during class project work time on a device like a laptop or iPad, a student veers off topic to find a silly video he had seen at home. The student does what he would do at home or with his friends -- he emails the video to a friend. At home and with his friends, this is the behavioral norm. But at school, this behavior is not acceptable and breaches classroom norms of engagement, focus and community. Yet the student is confused, having acted on impulse, forgetting the classroom "code." To go back to Gene Demby's explanation, the student has "reflexively" changed the way he expresses himself in the classroom.
