BYOD: The Benefits of Embracing Diversity | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher - 0 views

  • Of course, teachers need to establish “norms” to ensure devices are an asset and not a distraction. I have one expectation for students. When we are not using their devices, they need to be volume off and screen down on the corner of their desks. This way they are in full view and treated as a learning tool. When I say “screens up,” they know they are welcome to use their devices.

    Nice post on students using their own technology in the classroom (including cell phones).

How social media improved writing - FT.com - 0 views

  • Day by day, prose is becoming blessedly more like speech. Social media, blogs and emails have hugely improved the way we write.
  • Before the internet, only professional writers wrote
  • Email kicked off an unprecedented expansion in writing.

  • We’re now in the most literate age in history.
  • Clare Wood, development psychologist at Coventry University
  • Her own study of primary schoolchildren suggested that texting improved their reading ability.
  • Texters, after all, are constantly practising reading and spelling. Sure, children tend not to punctuate text messages. But most of them grasp that this genre has different rules from, say, school exams.
  • George Orwell in 1944 lamented the divide between wordy, stilted written English, and much livelier speech. “Spoken English is full of slang,” he wrote, “it is abbreviated wherever possible, and people of all social classes treat its grammar and syntax in a slovenly way.” His ideal was writing that sounded like speech. We’re getting there at last.

    From the Financial Times. Discusses how the use of email and social media changed and (in the author's opinion) improved the way we write.
