What I think

Jann, (2015)

Young children who hear more than one language spoken at home become better communicators, (Jann, 2015).

This is a fact and since people have intermingled more than the past today’s students must be better communicators.

It is the exposure to more than one language that is the key for building effective social communication skills (Jann, 2015).

Exposure gives one a better understanding. Today’s students have improved understanding hence better communicators.

“Children are really good at acquiring language. They master the vocabulary and the syntax of the language, but they need more tools to be effective communicators,” (Jann, 2015).

As opposed to the past students today acquire vocabularies even from different languages at their tender age which make them better students in school.

Effective communication requires the ability to take others’ perspectives(Jann, 2015).

Since today’s students intermingle with many people they learn taking people’s perspective hence better comunicators.

Seth, (2014)

The Internet just increases the overall frequency of communication (Seth, 2014).

Practice makes perfect and hence current students are doing increased practice as opposed to past students hence better communicators.

The best writers in the history of the world are graduating from college (Seth, 2014).

This can be a fact based on the role played by technology in the world today.

People do good writing every day, in social media—when they write a note on someone`s Facebook&nbspwall (Seth, 2014).

This is all about increased platforms for doing practice which nourishes someone’s communication skills.

We have become, in Wellman’s words, “glocalized,” simultaneously involved in both local and long-distance relationships(Seth, 2014).

Long distance relationships gives students exposure which perfects their communication skills.

McKnight, (2015)

Interactive text books Today’s textbooks often have web-based sites that include assessments, animations, additional materials, videos, and other materials to support the learning of new content(McKnight, 2015).

These features provided by contemporary learning materials are helping students to become better students.

Voice recognition software has improved greatly in the past few years and is more accessible. Children with special needs and limited English proficiency are able to more effective communicate in language based contexts(McKnight, 2015).

These software help all students to perfect their communication skills and as opposed to past times when this technology was not available, students today must be better communicators

Teachers and students can use this platform to discuss homework, post assignments, and interact with peers as they work on projects(McKnight, 2015).

Students are having ample time of interacting with teachers who assist them in perfecting their communication skills hence becoming good communicators as opposed to olden days.

Technology has dramatically changed the teaching and learning process(McKnight, 2015).

Learning has improved as a result of technology and hence students are receiving quality education hence better communicators.

Theabove discussion reveals that current students are bettercommunicators than the past students. Technology has played anintegral role in facilitating this fact. It is, therefore, evidentthat students today are the best communicators the world has everhad.
