10:30 AM -- Scottish schools are turning to Twitterspeak in an effort to make English "relevant." Today's has the perplexing story:

  • A NEW school curriculum which will change the way future generations are taught in Scotland has been unveiled.

    Text messaging and blogs will be used in English lessons...

    Using 21st century texts will make English as relevant as possible to a new generation.


  • Text messaging, blogs and websites will all be included in the "texts" pupils will study as narratives they are likely to encounter in modern life. Spoken English will have a greater emphasis at an earlier stage as a key skill of today's working environment.

English "a key skill of today's working environment"? LOL! SMK*!
