It’s all about perspective… Also found yourself in a discussion once with a number of 30+ adults saying that you really hold your breath when it comes to the writing skills of younger people as a consequence of their use of technologies such as texting, instant messaging etc.?
I only read the summary but this is what PEW found out and actually surprised me:
“Teens write a lot, but they do not think of their emails, instant and text messages as writing. This disconnect matters because teens believe good writing is an essential skill for success and that more writing instruction at school would help them.”
