Chalk Talk: Impact of Technology
Technology is present in every aspect of our lives. From the moment we wake each day we are surrounded by it. Our children will spend more time using technology than they will play outside. In many English classes teachers are facing a new and frightening problem. Students are losing the ability to write. They have computers and cell phones that correct words for them. They use text abbreviations in place of spelling words. Some argue that learning to write properly is an antiquated practice that is out of place in today's world of technology. What will be losing if we stop teaching children to write clearly and intelligently? We will be limiting our children. They will not be prepared for real world challenges. There are times where writing in an intelligent manner is still needed. It will always have a place we must not let technology take away our written language. Should be stop using technology of course not. However, parents need to place importance on writing and demonstrate that skill to their child.
