With teachers in the United States regularly going public about their frustration at technology’s impact on spelling, eReflect bucks the trend – announcing that computers may be just what kids need. Textisms and slang among young people are more popular now than ever before. While many are blaming technology for lazy spelling and grammar, eReflect – a leading producer of self-improvement software – believes that computers may actually be the cure. The company is making the claim after noticing the recent story of Ryann Barr, a teacher from Valley High School in Pittsburgh. After noticing her students’ poor spelling, Barr decided to hold a spelling bee to find out just how well her students measured up. After drawing up a list of the ten most commonly misspelled words, Barr claimed that the use of computers made spelling the “least of their (students’) concerns.”
