When was the last time you used a pay phone?
     – many things that we don’t realize about students

When was the last time you used a pay phone? And the last time you sent a film to be developed? This video shows a lot of things we, as educators, might miss about the students and society of today. This was originally to promote the educational changes the New Brunswick Community intend to make but it also has many significant points for any educators in the world.

The first unique impression of this video, compared to the video clip “A Vision of K-12 Students Today” that has similar message was that this one uses more delightful way to show the message including bright music and active animated images that interest its viewers. It contains many meaningful messages include:

-Changes in our society
-Changes in class in relation to using modern technologies
-What the modern schools should be like
-How the modern learners uses technology to gain, create and share knowledge
-What changes we can bring about to enhance young learners’ learning and knowledge-based activities online
-What important skills the 21st century learners needed for their career
-How we can provide the technology-rich environment for students
  The message it shows was quite simple and well-supported by various data and images. As I mentioned above, the best part of this video was how they approach to the topic. Considering the topic they deal with in the video, using creative design and images along with various animation effect and bright music seem to work well to many viewers. Whoever sees this video might feel what is needed clearly, I believe.
