    • A wonderful discussion about how important it is to involve students in the use of technology so that they can expand there sphere of influence beyond the regular confines of the classroom. - George Couros on 2010-01-30
    • These latest findings of an ongoing study at the University of Coventry contradict any expectation that prolonged exposure to texting will erode a child's ability to spell.
    • Researchers say text language uses word play and requires an awareness of how sounds relate to written English.

awareness" needed to learn correct spellings. </p><p>So when pupils replace or remove sounds, letters or syllables - such as "l8r" for "later" or "hmwrk" for "homework" - it requires an understanding of what the original word should be. </p><p>Instead of texting being a destructive influence on learners, the academics argue that it offers them a chance to "practise reading and spelling on a daily basis". </p><p>Using initials and abbreviations and understanding phonetics and rhymes are part of texting - but they are also part of successful reading and spelling development, they say. </p><p>"If we are seeing a decline in literacy standards among young children, it is in spite of text messaging, not because of it," said Clare Wood, reader in developmental psychology. </p><p>This is an interim report, based on a year-long study of 63 pupils in England, with the final report expected next year, but so far researchers have not found a negative association between using text abbreviations and literacy skills. </p><p>The use of text language "was actually driving the development of phonological awareness and reading skill in children", said Dr Wood. </p>&lt;!-- E BO --><br/><br><br

        What is EduCon 2.2?

          EduCon 2.2 is both a conversation and a conference.
         And it is not a technology conference. It is an education conference. It is, hopefully, an innovation conference where we can come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas -- from the very practical to the big dreams.

    • “The 21st century calls for knowledge workers who can effectively utilize the vast array of information that resides on the internet and who are capable of processing the information collaboratively with others.” Diigo for educators allows teachers and students to effectively and efficiently harness the knowledge power of the internet and provides a platform for collaboratively interacting with online information.
