In the video “A Vision of Student Today” by Dr. Michael Wesch, shows how technology can help the world but distract students in many ways, because of students using the technology inappropriately in class.This is clearly shown in the video, when a student says they spend all class facebooking instead of listening. Other students said they get distracted by their phone,ipods,and computers as well in class.  Some students are not using their technology for a learning tool in class and they need to take it out the classroom.

In Dr. Michael Wesch video  “A Vision of Student Today” States electronics distract students, but it can be very useful to a class and a student on a day to day bases.Technology can help outside the classroom and inside to be a useful tool.  Electronics are useful outside because they can be used for papers,homework,studying,keeping organized, ect. In the video a girl said she spends most of the class period on facebook, But that’s her fault not electronics. A different student says she only get 7 hours of sleep, but that maybe from using technology is a wrong way. They could be very useful in a classroom if the student used technology correctly and responsibly. If some students chooses not to do so that is their fault.  Technology is a great learning tool, Such as using the internet for a world wide learning experience. If schools took technology out of classroom because students were using it for the wrong reason, then all students would be at a learning disadvantaged for those who use it correctly. The World has Technology, and we should use it to our advantage in order  to learn quicker and faster on a daily bases. No matter if  in or out of the classroom, it  is very helpful. One big thing technology does is keep students  organized. A student needs to be organized to keep up on work, technology can do that.

Reading to means a lot to me even tho most of the time I don't read on my free time, it also helps in many ways.  It can help you learn and make you smarter as a person and as a student in school. We read because it makes smarter even we might not know it. I think about my story in my head, I make pictures and it turns out to be mini movie in my head. When I confused I go back the part I didn't and reread the part.  When it  comes to reading I have trouble focusing on the story. I start thinking about others that are going on in my life and I totally forgot what I just read. When I know if i'm successful I know what I just read and understand what is going on in the story. My role is to follow what is going on in the story.

Writing is a big a role in everyday life, so it is starting to become more important to me. The reason we write is because it make smarter and we need practice. IF we use it everyday,then we need how write the right way. When I right I often go to a quite place and start to write. When I get confused with a piece of writing, I reread it and if I need to fix it I do. When I start writing often have trouble focusing on what i'm trying to write. I know i'm successful when i go back over my writing and it sounds good and all comes together.  My role as a writer is to try engage the reader in what he or she is reading.

Thinking means a lot to means to me because if we don't think then we would make very stupid choices. We think because we need to think, we cant really live life without thinking. When I think I think about what i'm doing. When I Get confused about thinking I think about it agin until I get it what i'm thinking about. When it comes to thinking about a subject it is hard not to just start thinking about a different thing. I know i'm successful when I figure out what i'm thinking about. To try to figure out my problems and make myself smarter.
