Post Title: Global Communication (CMC11)
By DANI, Feed Name: CREATIVITY & MULTICULTURAL COMMUNICATION
Preview: So I signed in on Wednesday for Thursday live session and despite my efforts not to forget the session on Thursday I did. Talk about barriers in global communication, I may be my own worse enemy.Reflecting on what I read for this week I have chosen to focus on global barriers. Language, I would say is a huge barrier. Another barrier, as stated earlier, can be ourselves. So how to we work through ....

Post Title: Losing My Way
By Karen1961, Feed Name: Karen1961
Preview: I have found that over the past few weeks I have lost my way. I have hit a brick wall so to speak and I can't seem to get back on track. As hard as I try, I just keep spinning my wheels. I find the same thing happens when I try to be creative. No matter how much effort I put forth, it never amounts to much. I can only talk myself into so much and after awhile it falls on deaf ears.

Title: Re: What are your difficulties in this MOOC?
Preview: This is actually all new to me, so it took me a while to catch on. Still in the learning process, I suppose. I'm glad I'm being introduced to new ways of online communication. Unfortunately, most of the hangouts/chat sessions are during times I'm not available, due to me working a full time job on top of managing school. My favorite thing to do here is finding articles, sites, and ....

Title: Re: Transliteracy
Preview: Hi Karen, You know I have been concerned about what Carol describes as shorthand for sometime. In text messages yes, I can see when this is useful. My concern is for those, especially younger people who text as much as they breathe. Isn't this horrific distortion of the English language going to have a negative effect on the ability to spell? Are there studies being done to check this? ....
