Why computers are important

The e-Learning Foundation has released this video to raise awareness of the digital divide in today's world.

The campaign video is deceivingly easy, as we watch this kid explaining all the facts and figures of the access to computers in today's world. He talks really fast and we are presented with lots of visual information that may distract us from what is being said, although we also get the occasional caption to help us along.

Self-study activity:
Watch the video, which is divided into 5 clear cut parts:
Part 1 -Education and Learning.
Part 2 -Understanding Technology.
Part 3 -Opening up the World.
Part 4 -Unlocking Potential.
The Results.

Write some notes about what the boy says in each part. You may have to stop the video so that you have time to jot down some notes.

Then use your notes to orally retell what the boy has said in the ad.
