Email

Hey, I figured out that many of you do not know my school email. It is caldwb@mtnbrook.k12.al.us

Email... hmmmm, let's go with that. Do you think you communicate with people more frequently through email or through phone? Do you have a preference? Why?

I talk much more on the phone because emailing takes so much longer. Like if you need an answer right away it is pointless to send an email because the person you are sending it to will not get it when you need the answer. Talking on the phone is easy because you get the answer easy, but if I was talking to someone just for fun, just to talk i would probably send an email.

I probably use e-mail more often, but I like using the phone because it is more direct, and it is easier to explain things through the spoken word than the written word. If the person has a question, it can be answered right then and there on the phone. With e-mail, there is more delay time and the information might have changed or the recipient might have questions, ...HOWEVER... you can't send pictures or other files over the phone.

If i need a quick response, I will probably text someone, if I need a long explanation, a phone call will be fine, but other than that I am usually just online talkin to people on IM. I really do not enjoy talking on the phone that much and choose not to do it unless it is necessary. I prefer the phone if I am in bed, though.

It depends on the situation. If i need to talk to one of my teachers then I use email, because you really don't want to actually talk to your teachers on the phone because that would be weird. Anyway but I definately think talking on the phone is a lot better because it is faster and if you send an email you don't know if the person you are sending it to is actually on so it is not as quick.

I think it is much easier to communicate via phone. With email you don't know how long it is going to take for the person to receive your message. With a phone call it is simple and quick. Plus I'm on my dad's plan for his construction company so i get unlimited nextel minutes.

The phone is a much easier way to communicate. E-mailing takes a long time and people rarely even use it anymore. So basically, phones are better.

I agree with Suzanne, I definately don't email as much as I talk on the phone. Phone is so much quicker and I don't want to have to wait on people to answer me. It is just much easier if you call some one because you can get an immediate answer and you can see how people really feel. Email hides so much emotion, and you never know how some one is really feeling unless you can hear their voice.

I agree with Suzanne. The telephone is a much faster way to talk to people, especially with cell phones. Probably soon though everyone will have Pocket PCs and things like the Blackberry so they will use email more and more. I like talking on the phone better because it is more personal. On the other hand, if you really don't want to have to deal with someone you can just email them whatever you need and not have to talk to them. Both are good; I guess it depends on the situation as to which one i like the best.

A phone is much easier to get in touch with people if your in a hurry I think. But its always nice to go home and check your email and see "You've got mail". And not like the adds and college crap, but like a nice personal email maybe from an out of town freind or family member telling you how things are going and asking about you.

Mrs. Caldwell where are you, i hope you don't expect us to do these research papers with out you. please return.

The phone is a much easier way to communicate. E-mailing takes a long time and people rarely even use it anymore (it is out dated). So, phones are allways better.

I like talking on the phone much more, because you don't have to wait around for a response. When you email someone, you have to be a near a computer. Sometimes my friends will not check their e-mails for weeks at a time.

I am definitely attached to my cell phone! It's kind of weird. I text message a lot too. I don't really email a lot anymore. At the JHigh I was online a lot more but now I don't really have the time or want to sit at home on the computer. And plus it takes a lot longer for people to get emails.

I like having a teacher that uses email to communicate with students. It makes it easier to get in touch with the teacher if I'm at home and have a question about the class. Normally, however, I call people or text them on their cell.

MICHELLE! said...

The only people I email are my parents. Because they are the only ones who send me those "funny" chain letters and then I have to thank them for the "awesome/ funny" email. So, I definatley use my phone more than email because Suzanne is right..email takes so much longer.

AndersonS6 said...

I think email is just as useful as the phone but as far as just communicating with the people, the phone is far better. I don't really email people all that much, but I talk on the phone pretty often.

walkerd3 said...

I use email for mostly school stuff because it's more convient than using the phone. I use text messages only for if I need a quick answer. But I use the phone most because I always run out of text messages and if I go over than I get into trouble with the bill.

VirginiaB5 said...

I definitely communicate more with people on the phone then email. Being on the phone is easier because you get a direct response from that person. When emailing a question you need the answer might not come until a day or two later.

I think that i would have to say phone a little bit more than email because i mainly use the phone for meeting up with people and small talk type things but occasionally i will have a long conversation. I use email a lot more for longer, "dont have to have the response immediatly" type of conversation. I think i like the phone better because its a more personal conversation.

KatherineK5 said...

I use my phone a lot more than I use email. I agree with Callie about emailing teachers as opposed to calling them, though. I think phone conversations are more personal than email, so if it's something important, you should use the phone. Actually you should just go straight to the person and tell them to their face if it's important.

Kristenk5 said...

I like to use the phone more than I use e-mail. E-mail is easier to communicate with your teachers because like Callie said its kind of werid to have to talk to one of your teachers on the phone. Although e-mail is efficient sometimes it takes to long to get a response.

Addie said...

I usually don't email unless someone else has already emailed me and wants a response back or asked me to email them something specific. Otherwise i just talk to them on the phone or in person.

stus6 said...

I use the phone much more than the internet for conversation. I never really email people unless it is the only option I have. At the same time though, I do not like to use the phone. If I had my way I like to meet people face to face. I do a lot of things with my hands that cannot be seen over the phone.

maggieb6 said...

I almost never use e-mail. I like the phone because it's direct, and it's easier to understand the other person because you can hear their tone of voice. Its much easier too, and you don't have to worry about computer problems.

RebeccaL5 said...

I use both. I like both, but each have their advantages. E-mails are great especially if it just a random comment or question that you dont feel like calling the person about. The phone is obviously great because you can have discussions and more easily understand the person. Then again, with e-mailing you can send lots of information; its like magic!

christ1 said...

Phones for sure. They are alot quicker and easier to use; the whole email thing takes way too long to get a response. Phones are just more practical; you don't see everyone carrying around a computer just so they can email someone, they take their phones.

cward3 said...

I feel that the phone is more personal, however, email is a very appropriate way to communicate to the opposite sex because I feel it's more casual. I like email because it is a more convenient and efficient way of handling business affairs such as scheduling meetings or checking dates based on your availability. As technology advances a larger percentage of communication will be electronic.
