The facts on how much time someone spends on-line or texting shows how much technology is used every minute of everyday. This shows that even when a student is not able to make it to class they can still keep up with there fellow students. This video also shows the reactions from the parents when they are able to keep track of what there child is learning. It shows the difference in how a normal classroom setting differs from using a pod-cast to be about to show more interaction with the students. It also shows the excitement that the students show when they are able to interact with the lesson rather than being lectured.
