Email is dead.

Another interesting revelation from my research review this week. I discovered that students in this study generally approved of receiving their learning materials through their phones vs their laptop.   They specifically cited the text message being more convenient and helpful than email. This is an interesting discovery for me.  I traditionally associate my text messages with personal communication and my email for more formal things like school and work.  The generation of learners coming up being me (at least in this test group) obviously do not share this sentiment.

Furthermore the participants approved of the language intervention approach to vocabulary acquisition and to using their mobile phones to engage in informal study. The majority of opinions agreeing that the vocabulary intervention method could indeed be a beneficial influence on their vocabulary acquisition.
