A Professor Thinks Schools Should Stop Teaching Spelling and Grammar Because Our Gadgets Do It For Us [POLL]
Ya gotta love spell check, but a professor in England says schools should stop teaching spelling and grammar because our smart phones and computers can do it for us. What?
Sugata Mitra, professor of educational technology at Newcastle University, said that good grammar was necessary ‘maybe 100 years ago’ but ‘not right now’.
He said that traditional spelling classes are unnecessary when students have constant access to state-of-the-art technology.
