Hi, I'm a Textbook and I'm a Tablet

My students are super excited because our district has purchased iPads for a few of our classrooms next year. Two of my boys put together a commercial to showcase their excitement to embrace this fantastic technology addition to our school. One of their friends, along with my husband, helped to create the following product. Enjoy!

Please leave a comment for the boys to let them know what you thought. They're super excited to get feedback. Thanks so much!

Also, they are 'the YouTube' generation and would love to have you 'click here' to add a view to the YouTube page. Thanks - I love my PLN! Hugs!!

  2. How adorable! Love the pluto comment. They are entertaining and should go into showbiz. Sorry textbook, I'm a big fan of Mr. Tablet!

  3. Great job, boys. You had some really funny points. One of my favorites was when Tablet said that textbook had interesting information, like about Obama's election, etc.--things that textbooks can never keep up on. Very well-written and good acting. I love Mr. Textbook's clothes. Keep it up sharing your genius with the world!

  6. So timely and on-point. The dialog effectively highlighted the differences between old-fashioned texts and current information today. The actors did a great job with their parts! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Very well done guys. I think you nailed it on the head by pointing out the inability of textbooks to update. I will probably use this as an example of a high-quality student created video. It didn't look like you were reading lines, you kept your eyes on each other or the camera, and your speaking was very clear and understandable. Keep up the good work!

  8. What a great movie. I love the way you have done the comparison. Excellent work - I will be showing my students in Melbourne Australia this.

  9. Terrific! Very creative, guys! Maybe you can help sell other school districts on investing in tablets instead of texts. I'll be watching for more commercials from you, you future marketing moguls!

  11. I loved the video, guys! You made some wonderful points.

    I wonder if there's an app so I could use a tablet to scrape my window? ;)

  13. Great video! I would like to see tablets replace the textbooks in my classroom someday, soon! You do a great job of showing why that would be a good idea.

  18. Fantastic job boys! Great dialogue!
    I did a similar project with my students a few years ago. They used our school virtues as the subject of videos. For example, one student might be "joy" and another "misery" It was a lot of fun.

  20. "Hope they don't catch him. I might get an 'update'." Love it. Great comparison on the part of your students. Kudos to you boys. Keep them coming!

  21. Love the black t-shirt vs. shirt & tie outfits the boys wear to visually make the comparison also. Written, visual, and spoken commentary are all genius!
