Notetaking is like Texting

This is a video I made about a question an ESL student asked me today "How do you write notes?" Her question was really, how is notetaking different from writing full sentences? I came up with an analogy she understood - by using her cell phone!

That's a brilliant analogy. Kids always seem to get it when you relate it to their technology. PS. You need a nice catchphrase to end with.

Nice spin, and in a manner that kids can relate. Charlie and I both concur, we like you better without the facial hair! :)

Not sure if the original post went through...
Nice spin on note taking, a great way for the kids to relate!

BTW, you're looking well but Charlie and I both agree, we prefer the clean shaven Mr. G! :)

Thanks for your comments - about the facial hair spaguyswife - its for raising awareness for prostate cancer. We are calling this month MOvember, in honour of prostate cancer awareness month.

Mirror Man - A catchphrase, huh? I shall put some thought into it, and would welcome your suggestions.
