Students find a new addiction with playing games, and texting, which takes
attention away from learning in the classroom.It's like saying
calculators help students learn the multiplication table.Never trust
the term "studies", or "research shows".
Yes, my kids can spell LOL and BFF and IMHO with impeccable flawlessness.
Texting has been a big help in the spread of profound and meaningful examples of
what it means to be literate.
