Text Messaging and Implications for its Use in Education

Interesting ideas raised. This presenter saw text messaging and microblogging (Twitter) as the same thing. He seemed to argue that it was inevitable so we might as get on the bandwaggon.

Interesting observations

* Errors = spontenaity, urgency. Digital natives not critical of errors
* The faster you respond the more important you are to the person responding.

The presenter has a refereed paper available on the topic - http://etec.hawaii.edu/proceedings/2009/Tomita.pdf
Have a look at the references at the end of the paper - good stuff there.
