BBC News - Texting 'can boost children's spelling and grammar' - 2 views

  •  
    "Children's unorthodox spelling and grammar while texting does not stop them learning the rules of formal English, suggests research.

    Just over 160 children, aged between eight and 16, from the West Midlands, took part in the snapshot study.

    The researchers compared spelling and grammar in formal tests and in text messages, at the start of the project and again after a year.

    The results showed the most creative texters were among the best spellers.

    The children were asked to copy out all their text messages over a two-day period."

Why some kids can't spell and why spelling tests won't help - 9 views

  • If spelling words are simply strings of letters to be learnt by heart with no meaning attached and no investigation of how those words are constructed, then we are simply assigning our children a task equivalent to learning ten random seven-digit PINs each week.
