After reading Wesley Fryer's

Was this helpful?
After reading Wesley Fryer's blog entry from April on Chat lingo, I did a poll of my sixth graders to see how many IM. It was one of those paradigm shift moments where I had no idea that nearly all my students IM. We began a great discussion and I asked them what they IM about, and, as you said, many are making chit chat, but they also said they all check in to ask questions about homework and current assignments. I am looking forward to using Gaggle next year not only for the email/blog service, but also to invigte and engage conversation via IM!
