Debate: Is text messaging causing the destruction of the English language? - Helium - 0 views

  • They've become so used to this informal language, that they cannot write formally when they need to.
  • If you look at texting as a bad thing towards talking and ruining face to face communication skills, then lets take a look at that. If they're texting you, but won't talk to you face to face, maybe they haven't had very good confrontational skills to begin with, maybe that person wouldn't be talk to you at all if he/she didn't have texting as a way to talk to you.

News: An Experiment Takes Off - Inside Higher Ed - 1 views

  •  
    Wow - great to see a new online program EXCEED its initial enrollment goals! This model is worth keeping an eye on.
  •  
    It is growing! I saw a commercial a couple of years ago that really struck me. It depicted two kids in a very modern home in Japan with their mother mulling about doing house work. Instead of playing video games on the large flatscreen on the wall, they were engaged in a math course talking to the teacher in real time. I have to believe that it is very real model that will evolve and succeed as it is at USC. Great article, thanks!
