The “Did you now 4.0” video was perfect for this week’s topic. It demonstrated in an effective manner the adverse way that technology impacts our lives. The video was created in 2009, so a more updated version would probably be even more shocking to students, and I think that students would be better acquainted with some of the events mentioned in the video (I believe that the video mentioned swine flu, which is so 2009). Great resource, nonetheless.
The author’s commentary video was another great resource for this week’s read where Kelly summed up some of his most important points. There’s just something neat that people can connect to when they hear the person’s voice after spending so many hours with that person’s words while reading their book, but if there was a video with a visual of the author, that would be ideal.
Finally, the evolution of classroom technology interactive website was a great way to demonstrate (or disprove) many of the topics discussed in the book. I could see having students explore this with a few teacher-provided critical thinking questions and it being a success.
