I’m a 43-year-old male, so to say I’m well-versed in things like emojis and animated GIFs is utterly false! To me, they have always been a waste of time and unnecessary effort. But, emojis are part of our general vocabulary these days. Heck, even my parents, who are in their 70s, have gotten into using emojis.
In the past several months, I have come to the realization that Emoji can be a very powerful tool, especially in education. I highly recommend Tony Vincent’s presentation called “An Emoji Education” from ISTE 2018. Check it out here.
