Lanquage Prejudice and ePortfolios

We know that writing and reflection are key components of eportfolios.  My colleague, Stephanie Wade, Lecturer SBU Writing and Rhetoric, shared with me, “What speech do we like best? Language expresses who we are, and who we want to be. It can also unite or divide us.” about language prejudice. I had to think of how faculty tend to view our students’ microblogging and texting as dummying down the English language and communications… NIMC (Not In My Classroom). Are our language skills falling to pieces or are we transitioning to another format?  Are Web 2.0 applications ruining the English Language? How does this affect eportfolio standards?  Should we have writing standards for showcase eportfolios?  I look forward to your comments.
