The Did You Know? 3.0 video was very interesting to me in several ways. The first thing that really caught my attention was the ever ascending population of the world. In the beginning of the video, when it stated that China has 1,300 times the population of the U.S., my attention was grabbed. It fascinated me that in a five minute span that 395 babies were born in India.
Another point that caught my eye, was that in the U.S. it has been found that most people have had 10-14 jobs by the age of 38 and that 25% of all workers will keep their current job for less than a year. My mind really got turning when I realized that most the information I learned my freshmen year in college, is now outdated.
The most interesting part of this video to me was the different ways in which technology has advanced in the past twenty years. The internet reached 50 million users 19 times faster than the radio, and 6.5 times faster than the TV. The internet is responsible for one eighth of all marriages today.
This video was very, very interesting to me and I can not wait to see how the world advances in the next few years.
Mr. Winkle Wakes
Matthew Needleman's use of still pictures to portray the image of the story of Mr. Winkle Wakes was perfect.
Through a mix of live photographs and animation, Needleman truly captured the meaning of this story.
Mr. Winkle Wakes confusion after his 100 year slumber truly shows us the ways in which the world has
advanced through technology and education. The reassuring part of this story is that no matter how much technology
and society change, the importance of education remains to be a vital part of the culture of the United States. That importance of education is the reason that these technological advances have been possible.

Your Students' Digital Smarts
I felt as though she truly wanted her students to learn how to successfully use the technology that has had such an
impact on our country as well as all countries throughout the world. She not only wanted them to know how to use this technology,
but she was very aware of the importance of the use of all forms of technology.
This video really made me want to be in Ms. Vicki Davis's class! While she was teaching the children about the uses and importance
of technology, she made it fun and enjoyable for her students. The Avatar project that the children were using in the video
