Communication Changes

Have you ever heard the saying that the older you get, the faster time flies? Living in the technology-rich world of today, one cannot help but encounter change. There have always been short-lived fads and increasingly ‘bigger and better’ products influencing our lives. Today’s transformations are more strongly impacted by technology and resulting change is exponentially faster.

Consider e-mail as one of the primary forms of communication in the last decade. Prior to 1995, e-mail was as rare as a snowstorm in Florida. Ten years later, it has become a primary connector for both personal and business use. Now that asynchronous tool is labeled
‘old fashioned’ by today’s youth. Their preferred tool is text messaging via the ubiquitous mobile devices or instant messaging via web-based platforms. So, how do you communicate? Participate in the poll!

  • Although I use email to communicate with co-workers, friends, and family I am careful to remember that the casual style and cute abbreviations that are appropriate there are NOT appropriate in formal communication such as business letters or school papers. I am pleased to see that my stepson's teachers at LWTHS agree (and that his grammar and punctuation are part of the assignment grade).

    Thank you!
