Should your teacher text message you?

Here’s a thought: vocabulary words sent to twice a day in a nice little text message. As a teacher, it seems perfect. I get to catch my students during their social time and focus them (for just a second) on learning. The text message gives them a nice bite-size chunk of learning. There have been several research studies, like “Using mobile phones in English education in Japan”, that show text messages can help students learn vocabulary better than traditional methods.

In that study, students said they liked receiving the text messages, but I just don’t know. I guess, if it helps students learn more while “studying” less, then of course they would like it. But for those students reading this…should your teacher send you text messages? If you say yes, I am going to start doing it to my students.

    I’m in college and I am horrible at English. I think this would be a great idea for your students. I’m a junior majoring in Business Marketing and high vocabulary is a must! Since, advanced vocabulary is a way of explaining to others specifically what your thinking etc. Furthermore, In the business world the highest paid CEO’S, have the highest vocabulary.
    Make it fun!
