I like this TED talk because it talks about the benefits of something that is widely used around the globe. Texting is often critized of being a distraction and is inessential, but this TED talk talks about texting in a different light. Texting does have its faults but it does have good qualities too.
Do you think this TED talk should be one of our Top 5? I think that texting is such an important part of teenagers' lives, this might be a very good idea to provide a place for them to share their thoughts and perhaps seek out support and help.
This wasn't my favourite ted talk but I think it could be one of our top 5 ted talks. I think that it's a very good idea to help and support teens via text messaging. Teens are always on their cellphones and it's a quick and easy way to communicate with them through texting.
Teenagers love to text! This talk is very important to watch and then share your response. This woman is proposing a very powerful method of using cell phones (not just to Tweet something funny or clever) - shouldn't we all want to embrace a way to help people find connections in this world?
I liked this TED talk because everyone has cell phones now, even 9 year old kids are getting them! It is very easy to pick up your phone and send a quick message without anyone else knowing. As she said, it is quiet, fast and usually a lot easier to get something out then talking to someone face to face. This should be in the top 5.
since everyone is so used to texting, it's easier for people to talk about their problems that way and no one will know which is why i think it shouild be in the top 5.
i also liked this ted talk becuase it shows people something in our everyday lives that we dont nessararly look at as useful and shows us how it can save lives. Since texting and cellular telephones are so commonly used, i belive this ted talk should be in out top 5.
I like this Ted Talk because it shows that texing can be an important thing and can also save lives. Texting can be useful because it's easier to text someone then email or calling that person. Texting is a way to tell others without it being personal. I believe that this can be in the top 5 Ted Talks.
This is a good ted talk because its easier to text rather than talking.
I think this should be one of the top 5 TED taks because as a teenager I cannot live with out my cell phone and I am always texting. Teens also prefer to get help over text because it helps them word their problems and they are not as vulnerable. When you text your problems your emotions do not affect the listener's response and they do not interrupt what you are trying to say. Most teens are also too shy to get the help they need face to face because they do not feel comfoprtable but "hiding" behind a cell phone and texting someone their problems is a more effective way to seek help. Teenagers love to text and this ted talk teaches us that we can text our problems to seek the help we need.
I really enjoyed this ted talk and i believe it deserves to be in our top 5! Most Teenagers these days have cell phones and these devices have become a major part of their lives which they use daily. Also if teenagers have any problems which they find hard to talk about, they would possibly feel more comfortable anonymously talking to another person over text about it because teenagers partially become more comfortable not only talking to their friends, but anyone over text and other technology or social networking sites.
I believe that this ted talk deserves to be in the top 5 because the message can get through to almost every due to almost everyone having a phone and can relate to this.
I Really enjoyed this Tedtalk and think that it should be in the top 5. I think this because it really shows that texting is not a horrible thing though it can be abused. It can be helpful because people can text anonymously about their issues and get help. But texting can be bad for bullying and other things.
I agree with this TED talk because, this generation kids are always on the internet and using via text message to communicate and get invovled with activities. So if this generation is full of technology then having someone to talk to over text is a good idea, therefore I think this should be one of the top fives.
I like this TED talk because everyone is familiar to texting. Texting can be used for good. This can be very useful to teens because our generation is very comfotable with texting.
I think that this TED talk shows what texting is capable of if use correctly for the right purpose. I believe that this TED talk deserves to be in the top 10 because it connects with us as teenagers and the importance to tell someone what’s going and the fact that they can help
I believe that this ted talk should be on the top 5 because it shows that texting can have more than one purpose other than communicating to others but it can also be used for expressing emotions and feelings which can help others.
I really liked this ted talk because it shows that times are changing and teens could look toward a texting hotline in stead of a help phone or somehthing like that because they are more comfortable texting because they do it everyday.
I think this should be a top 5 TED talk because it is interesting because I don't think that people would think that texting could/can save peoples lives. Also as a teenager I text alot and most people do which had a big impact on us.
I like this TED talk because it shows the impact that texting has on teenagers these days, it’s so easy to just pick up your phone and send a quick text in confidence. No one knows and the benefit is so great, if teens are cutting themselves and have no one to talk to, they will continue. If they want to quit and they have support they WILL stop and this is such a positive impact on just sending a simple text to receive support. Texting may have many faults, but many people concentrate on them and don’t pay attention to the benefits and in my point of view the benefits are much greater than faults. This is why this TED talk should be number 1 :)
This is where we will present and discuss the TED talks.
