I think it would be great if people could just get up of their seats and actually engage in a 'conversation ' - remember those ?
I'm sure the way schools are carrying on a the moment kids in 20 years time will start to lose the use of their tongue.
E-mail this, E-mail that - pathetic, yet another way in which teachers don't have to engage the kids.
I have no problem in E-mail for staff etc - makes perfect sense but for the kids it's pointless and really I can't see how it benefits them apart from excuses for not doing homework..... must be spam, contain a virus, wrong format, computer at home does not work, ISP not working etc etc etc.
Put the twittering classes in charge of educational "vision" and of course all the tosh they waste half their paid work and home lives on, the social networking banality (thank you Helen Wright!) is suddenly absolutely, extremely, definitely very important. History will look back and laugh.. well assuming we haven't produced so many generations of slackers that they're incapable of keeping the lights on.
