What is communicating?

The children said this was talking, writing and taking pictures. They decided it wasn’t playing multiplayer games if you couldn’t message. They said you can’t see peoples faces, and in MineCraft the faces stay the same and you can’t know what they are feeling.

Talking tools

Skype, Face Time, phone message, talking on a phone

Writing tools

Texting, Mine Craft, Lego Jurrasic World (can choose a message at the end of the game), Balloon Battles, RaynMan (sometimes), We Chat, email, Twitter

  1. These responses are very interesting.

    In my time . . . Under writing tools I would only have given answers such as: pen, pencil, colors, crayons. . .


  2. Very interesting. Im relieved that the children think that knowing how others feel and seeing others expressions are also important for communicating.
