Dr. Christie's Internet Resources and Tools: IM
When I started looking at what she had on IM, it took me back to being in high school and writing notes in class. When we would write notes and the teacher would take it up in class, there would be some "IM lingo" and the teacher would have no idea what it meant. When I started reading the lingo and abbreviations there were some I have never even seen. I think this would be a useful tool for teachers to use to understand what their students are talking or writing about. It could also be a bad thing though because students have started using this lingo in professional papers, and we as teachers have to make them understand that is not appropriate for papers for school.
