ORQ Question

 

 

 

 

It has been proven through a recent study that teens text on average 3, 339 times per month.  This is only between 13 – 17 year olds and their talk time has went down by almost 11 hours per month.

A.)  Identify two different traditional ways of communicating with another person using technology before there were cellphones to text.

B.)  Explain why each method of communication you described in part (A) is no longer as popular to communicate with another person as texting.

C.)  Analyze how ANY new technologies we have talked about in class this year so far, can or will change how much people text each other.  Will it be more or less? Will it become more popular and replace talking on the phone alltogether or will something replace texting as the new best way to communicate?

(You MUST give me fully thought out sentences and use the A.C.T. method-no short answers or text message language.)

    A). Well i think computers was a good way of communication. Computers is good cause they have a communication systems. Another one is old school telephones. The reason why they are good is because they are better then the computers and because they have more of a value.

    A. i think that the traditional way to communicate with another person would be like sending letters to each other which means writing them out then texting and just pushing letters on a screen. there could also be computers to send something to other people because computers came before cell phones.

    B. i think that the method described at the top is not as popular then texting because people have gotten to lazy to write down letters or type things down on the computers.

    C. i think that there is this technology that is called the ring phone that you put it in your finger and you can send text or call anyone through it. there is also this other phone that looks like it is made out of glass people could get attracted to it and start texting a lot. i think that the people get attracted to the phones because of their looks that they have on them.

    A). -Emailing Each other
    -sending a letter

    B). letters take too long by time the person gets the letter they would forget what that was even talking about.
    when you email you have to sit by the computer & wait for the person to reply .. texting is a lot easier

    B.) I think its not so popular anymore because for some people there computers go to slow or the don’t have one. And i think that come people don’t want to call someone because the might not want to talk so its easier to text someone.
    C). You know im not sure i would guess that the texting would increase. Because with these new cell phones that are coming out are unbelievable. The texting on these phone are cool, and one phone i saw it could create a hologram off of the internet.

    A. Two traditional ways people used to talk to each other when you couldn’t text you, they would send emails. Or they would use a phone to call you to talk to you. I remember i used to talk on the phone all the time when i was little.

    B. Why it is not as popular as it used to be because of texting is because every one is texting. Then people don’t have to get on the computer to tell some one some information when it is quicker to text. It is not as popular to talk on the phone because it becomes a habit for kids or teens to text and they don’t feel like calling some one when they are able to do the same with a text. Like I text my mom more then i call her because I hate calling some one it is boring and you don’t think of some thing to say.

    C.I think if they were to make it to where you could say something in to the phone and it sends it into a text then more people would start to text. But if it stays the same as it is now then i don’t think it would change the amount of how many people text . Or if the people would text more. Like if i had a Phone that would do that then I would text way more then I do now.

    a)two ways people communicated before there was cell phones is by the computer and on the house phone
    b)the house phone is no longer popular to communicate because you can’t text on it and it don’t have the same stuff on it like a cell phone does.the computer is no longer popular to communicate because most people don’t have a computer at home or internet on there phone to get on myspace and other stuff
    c)i don’t think nothing we’ve talked about will change how people text because if a new phone comes out they still can text and on laptops they can send messages to each other.and it would probably be more.and i think it will become more popular and replace talking on the phone altogether unless they invent something that you can’t text on or send messages

    A. Two technology’s to get in touch with another person back in the day they send each other letters and they rode horses to go see that person face to face.

    B. The two technology’s aren’t used anymore because people like to text other people such as friends, boy friends / girl friends, family. I think the reason why teens like to text a lot is either their shy on the phone or they just don’t like the way they talk on the phone. I personally think that teens should talk on the phone instead of texting because your going to go over the bill. Also you could get in more trouble if your parents read a message that is innopropiate.

    C. Some technology’s we learned this year is emailing, commenting, messaging, and pagers. This changed how people talk with each other. But I think it will be about the same because a lot of people send message’s on My Space and Face Book. Also I think something will replace texting because the amount of texting teens do a month is crazy. They should lower down their texting skills and start talking on the phone more.

    A) Two types of communicating before texting was Email and just talking on their phone.

    B) I Think that email became less popular when some person got tired of typing and computer errors. But texting is kinda like email in a way too. You still have to type the letters to get your word, But you don’t have to worry about errors. I think talking on the phone is dead… OxO I mean you hardly ever see someone talking on the phone unless its a C.e.o. Or something like that.

    C) The new phones!! Texting shall replace everything!! If you think the texting rates are high now just you wait until Tech. advances even more!!

    A) House phone and the telegraph

    B)Its no longer popular because the computer become popular at emailing, so it replaced the telegraph and house phone ain’t popular because the cell phone was made, so cell phones become more popular now because there mobile and it has texting which is really popular

    C)I think the new phones will change how we text because there phones be made now that text way faster now that the other slide texting phones. I think that maybe webcam on the phone will be the next big thing and might end up replacing texting and maybe even talking.

    A). Two traditional ways that people communicated before cell phones were invinted was they used computers and letters.

    B). These aren’t as popular as texting because some people think its just a waste of time to write a letter, or sit on the computer when they can just text. Some people even think that its “the old fashion” way of communicating. Texting is just a faster way of communicating with actually talking on the phone.

    C). I think that the i-phones have made people text more because its like a computer. When you text on an i-phone, its sorta like i.m on a computer. I think that texting is always going to be popular, but eventually something will come out to take over texting (Not all the way, but to where less people text). Maybe something like the new i-phone 4. People are on the phone talking, but they can also see what each other are doing.

    Emailing on the computers was one way of communicating but they had really stupid computers another way is mailing in your mail box it counts as techno down the line. it is not that popular because there is i.m (instant messaging). and for mailing we have cell phones so its faster mail. I think more because a lot of new technology has texting on it so people we see how easy it is and want to do it.

    B. Sending letters aren’t as popular now days because if you have a cellphone it’s on the go! you don’t have to wait forever to get it back!

    B.Well emailing through yahoo it comes just as fast as text do but one day you might not get on and it was very important what y’all was talking about all you have to do it just text the person.And the next thing i said is that you really don’t want to do all that walking to just tell somebody one thing.

    ♥a.) One way you could use technology is you could talk on a house phone. Another is you could send letters or e-mails.

    ♥b.) You aren’t always at your house so you can’t always use a house phone to talk on. You don’t always have the time to write letters so we don’t anymore. We’re not always on the computer to send e-mails.

    ♥c.) On the new future phone we talked a bout the other day people could text more or less. More, because it’s a new phone they want to break in. Less, because it has the blue-tooth setting people probably want to try out.

    B) Well emailing people is still okay but not as many people use emails as much as they do phones. Sending letters sucks because you have to write. Whats the point of wasting your time writing when you could just press a button.

    C) There is the smart phone. You can just say what you want to text then it types it up and sends it to the person. This is a way better way to text people. 🙂

    A. Here are some ways you could have communicated by using emails, which seems to long so you could call with your home phones. The home phones would be much faster than emails in my opinion, and you could send letters.

    B.People don’t use part A anymore because it takes to long and we would rather not hear their voice or see them in person, so they talk its fast and easy. I think only older people use part A.And everybody texts.

    C. I think everybody will always text especially with all the new cell phones they are coming out with. Texting is still the thing everybody does and they will probably text forever.

    A. Well one way we communacated before cell phones were invented is by email. Another one would be by calling on a home phone. (not a cell phone)

    B. E-mailing is a lot harder than texting. I say this because you have to get on the computer and send it. With texting you can just send it on your phone. With calling people it is also harder. Like for example if you are doing something you can’t always just awnser your phone. Also sometimes you don’t want to talk on the phone, nd you just want to text.

    C. If anything was going to take over texting is the ipad. Ya, it is expensive now but ounce it gets cheaper evey one will have one. There is a e-mail thing on there for you to use. But in other words i really don’t think anything is going to replace it.

    C) i think it will make it more popular becuase they are coming out with all these cool cell phones and little gagits and things that would make texting easyer and more afisent.

    B) Well people don’t really uses E-mail as much because they really not home as much and don’t want to be to be honest. Talking isn’t as easy as texting because like you can text in school but you can’t talk on the phone or it would get taking away but alot of the times people like to text instead cause its alot faster.

    C) I think Texting would go up but No Talking on the phone wouldn’t

    b.
    i think talking on the phone isnt as popular because if you just have one question to ask and you call someone it could take alot longer because the person you calll might try to like start a new conversation and you dont want to talk to them it would be rude to hang up and rude to just be like i dont want to talk to you and also because if you dont want anyone to hear your conversation then talking on the phone is not a good idea!

    i think email isnt as popular because if you want to talk to someone and they arent online then your out of luck!
    but more than likely all teenagers have a cell phone and dont go anywhere without their cell phone so you can easily get a hold of someone through texting!

    C.
    i think that for a while texing is going to stay popular but once people become more familiar with more advanced technology and newer things then texting might become less popular and something else will become the new way to communicate!

    a)one way is that you could use a house phone to talk to your friends…another way is that you could meet your friends somewhere…

    b)those methods are no longer popular because people hate talking on the phone cause it uses up all you minutes..and why would you tall on the phone if you have unlimited texting…

    c)it will change a lot about the way people text

    a.} their is email, texting , bloging, mp3 and other new things that you people put on phones.
    b.} emailing is alot more info and more work than text messaging. text messaging is easyer because you just put the number in your phone and write to them and then send your message.
    c.} i think that phone will be vary popular and alot of teens will buy it.

    A) talking and sending letters

    B)talking on telephones is old and no one uses it that much anymore,
    sending letters hardly anybody does either anymore because it takes a while for them to get to the people your sending them to

    C) texting is popular cause its a fast quick way to communicate with people and im not sure how they can make it better

    a.) Identify two different traditional ways of communicating with another person using technology before there were cellphones to text is that you can send a letter or something or maybe even a call on a house phone
    b.)Explain why each method of communication you described in part (A) is no longer as popular to communicate with another person as texting is that nobody likes to write anymore and that when you have a house phone you cant take it everywere so it aint that good!
    c.)Analyze how ANY new technologies we have talked about in class this year so far, can or will change how much people text each other. Will it be more or less? Will it become more popular and replace talking on the phone alltogether or will something replace texting as the new best way to communicate? is that i was thinking the i pad or a computer because tlike they are faster and stuff o yeah! 🙂 🙂

    A. Two traditional ways are email and calling home phones.

    B. The reason why email is not so popular anymore is because it can be forever before you get replies. The reason why home phones are not so popular is because they are not portable in size.

    C. The technology will make the rate go up. Somehow all the calling will either be gone or used by seniors. I think one way they may replace texting, and it’s really advanced, would be a hologram.

    -ORQ-
    A. Two traditional way’s that people cummnitcated befor technology could be by letter or even back then they had birds deliever messages among one another.

    B.Letters arent as popular as they use to be because many people have dicovered technonlogy and basically said forget about writing i can type it instead. And Birds arent as popular because were not in the old time back then where there wasnt such thing as technonlogy.

    C.To me i think it depends on how much of the creaters create more and newer things that many of americans or all around the world would become interested in.So even though we all have different people we may all have the same designs and interest.

    A) two ways of using technology is by sending a mail or sending an email to the person or chating with your friends online.

    B) becuase people think its old school and boring to do that.

    c) one technology that we have talked in class that can replace texting is the new phone that you can call your friend and see them on the phone.

    A.) You could communicate with each other by talking on the phone. Also you could communicate with each other by going to someones house and you could write people letters.

    B.) Talking on the phone is still kind of popular. But Sending people letters isn’t because texting is way faster then writing.

    C.) Honestly I think that texting is better then any kind of new technology is not going to be better then texting. That’s what i think.

    B.) Explain why each of the method of communicate you describe in part (A) is no longer as popular to communicate with another person as texting it is because you can be popular when you are texting on a cellphone or I can use some technology too.

    A: You could communicate by talking on the REAL phone, or by writing someone a letter.

    B: Because a use instead of talking on a phone, you can just text people on your cell phone. and also, instead of writing letters, you can do IM (Instant messenger) or you can text someone as well .

    C: One technology that we have talked about in class is where we can replace texting with this new phone that you can call your friend and see them on the phone.

    A. i think that the traditional way to communicate with another person would be like sending letters to each other which means writing them out then texting and just pushing letters on a screen. there could also be computers to send something to other people because computers came before cell phones.

    B. i think that the method described at the top is not as popular then texting because people have gotten to lazy to write down letters or type things down on the computers.

    C. i think that there is this technology that is called the ring phone that you put it in your finger and you can send text or call anyone through it. there is also this other phone that looks like it is made out of glass people could get attracted to it and start texting a lot. i think that the people get attracted to the phones because of their looks that they have on them.

    A: People could use one of those type writers to print and then mail papers. another way to communicate is to just write a letter and mail it.

    B: It’s not as popular because people can just text real quick or send an email. Also they could just call them.

    C: I think that eventually we will have something that will be way better. I think that texting won’t be as popular. people will start texting less.

    B.) they aren’t as popular anymore because many people probably don’t see any point in using those anymore.

    C.) well I don’t think texting will stop. But maybe talking on the phone will because me personally I am not a talk on the phone person.

    a)-one way is letters&other way was the old old house phones
    b)-letters aren’t that important because whatever people got to tell another person they just send them a email……And people don’t really use the old old house phones anymore because they have a lot of different phones out that do a lot of different thing.Like some phones don’t have buttons so you can just touch the contract in the phone you won’t to call.
    c)-I think the only thing to change people using texting so much would be that new thing where you can have a computer on you TV.That will stop people texting so much because its a computer but shaped like a TV……thanks for reading

    i think that people text alot cause they think that it is fun. and though it is fun, it will more than likely want to do it more. i personally don’t text, so by that, two ways that i comunicate is on the internet, and talk on the phone. i am a user on myspace, yahoo, and youtube. so i do not see the need to add texting. i text only when i need to be descrete in an emergency. or whenever i need something
