Impact of mobile technologies on emergent writing

    I am looking at impact of mobile technologies on emergent writing for my final year dissertation and I was just wondering if anyone would be kind enough to fill in a quick survey for me to support my research. Thanks in advance.

    I'm not qualified to answer these questions anymore but I wouldn't describe it as a "quick" survey. i get rather irritated by people using this Personal forum for this purpose. Of course, the OP is using initiative but, it isn't the right place imo.

    I must say that I have to agree with you @lindenlea
    It sounds a little churlish to do so but, dammit, you're not wrong.

    I feel a little churlish today - don't know why.

    That's more of an essay request! It's not a small ask at all.

    Agree about the constant posting of similar things, I suspect supervisors are telling people to put it on here to get a load of teachers to respond. It's not as if anything of significance comes of these things.

    And there is existing research on this.

    I wonder if people post to NHS fora surveying doctors' views on the impact to health of not eating.

    I clicked it, realised it involved writing not just a tick box and closed it... too busy.

    I don't know what "emergent writing" is.

    Learning to write. Think emergent bicycling.

    Hardly 'research' when it involves a survey. The OP needs to look at objective studies, etc.

    Why not use English then? Anyway I'm into "emergent retiring" at the moment.

    Insufficiently arcane. ITT is full of this stuff because if students realise that their tutors know no more than they then they might then realise that they're paying good money for old rope.

    Replied but you need to post this on early years.

    They did.

    I always fill out student's surveys.
    This issue was in my mind yesterday. The future is typing, really it is. And why do we make children labour at hand writing in say - year 6 - no one else does this - it is all electronic. And why do we make children labour at writing without giving them those soothing endless sessions of hand writing practice that gave us the fluency we had - they always have to be composing brilliant stuff with correct punctuation. We did lots of copy writing from the board and lots of drill too. This is what "pace" has brought to us. A driven education system where there is no time for the consolidation of mechanical skills and muscle development.
    I don't remember composing much content in writing until quite late in primary education. We push too much on young children.

    It's a term used in Early years - it's not a new one, we were certainly using the expression in the early 80s when I trained and I don't think it was new then.

    Because god forbid we actually teach anything these days - it has to be actively discovered and "emerge" all on its own.

    That's not really what it means. It's comparing a child's early efforts at 'writing' (scribble, if you like) to their early efforts at speaking (babble). You don't just leave it at that, when a baby babbles you talk to it, ascribe meaning to the noises and expand on it so it learns to speak. Similarly with writing, it doesn't mean you don't teach anything. It's a useful term in Early Years when you're dealing with the very beginning of literacy.
