From telegrams to SMS – teachN yr studnts 2rite

Posted by LibeRaCe on July 26, 2010

The Digital Ethnography group at Kansas State University highlighted the above paragraph from a reflection on teaching in 1898. How things have moved on ….. or have they?

Fast forward over 100 years and instead of telegrams, what about (SMS) text messaging, (IM) instant messaging and Twitter posts – can you harness these everyday technologies to get your students to think about how and what they are writing? Can they write a story synopsis, a one line review, an emergency announcement or an online advertisement?

If you want to know more, contact your library on ext.342 or library@llandrillo.ac.uk to find out more practical uses for Web 2.0 technology in the classroom.
