What would your students brief take on the battle of New Orleans using their own tech savvy be like?
First, let's just imagine the soldiers of the Battle of New Orleans, January 8, 1815, were "tech savvy" and they got busy telling the world about their victory. How and what would they have said? Who did they beat, what were the conditions, what time was it, how many there were…..? Now remember their text can only be 140 words/characters per message which means things they communicate would have to be brief.
