Perhaps it isn’t the end of the world as we know it

I found this video really interesting.

As an English teacher who uses technology for more than just typing up the assessments, I am constantly being asked about the end of handwriting, the downfall of the English language and how “text” language is ruining daily life. None of which I think will happen in any case.

When I look at my students they are writing more, many of them prefer to type over write and there is a place for that too – it is all literacy.
