THE TEXTING EFFECT AND THE IMPORTANCE OF TALK IN THE 2010 CLASSROOM $100.00
Authors:  Elizabeth Hale
Abstract:
In December of 1999 there was a slight panic. Along with the excitement of witnessing the start of a new century and a new millennium, came the phenomenon known as Y2K. We were about to enter the year 2000 but computers were not programmed to read dates in the 21st century. With so many aspects of commerce relying on computers to function, from the stock market to power grids to trains, reliance on technology was everywhere. Suddenly our country‘s ever growing dependence on technology brought a feeling of vulnerability and a realization of just how much our lives, business and social, relied on computers and technology. Then, the clocks ticked over to January 1, 2000. And nothing happened. Any questioning about whether our lives were becoming too dependent on technology seemed to quickly fade away. If anything, the presence of technology in most Americans‘ daily lives has increased dramatically since 2000.
When it comes to looking at reading instruction in the year 2010, there is just cause for researchers and educators to discuss and praise the innovative ways to teach as well as offer differentiated instruction through technology. ―The International Reading Association (2002)…recognized that literacy instruction is influenced by change in profound ways with the arrival of the ‗new literacies‖ (Larson, 2009) and ―authors write about digital literacy (and related terms such as visual literacy and media literacy) as one of the important new discourses in our schools‖ (Pearson, D., Ferdig, R., Blomeyer, R.L., and Moran, J, 2005).
Advances in technology are not only changing methods of teaching and the way in which students can learn, but also content taught in schools. Educators need to provide students with the skills to live in a digital world. Internet research, PowerPoint presentations, podcasting, wiki assignments, digital movie making and ―virtual field trips‖ offer multi-sensory and creative ways for students to experience new information as well as present content learned. Such outlets for communication are already becoming commonplace in many workplaces in our country and abroad and will clearly be a part of our students‘ professional lives.
