    Hum, thought provoking. I hadn’t heard of this book or it’s author. Much research is flat and without meat, like this author’s. You make a good point on how the role of social networking is far deeper than friendly chats.

    Really like that you inserted the video clips with your own ideas about what was said. I kind of did a similar thing in my video by using lyrics from the artists I was sharing my opinions about. Good job.

    I thought it was wonderful that you questioned his idea and instead, instead of being the dumbest generation, we are just trying to be more forward in our ideas and in fact using the internet as a tool, rather than as a hindering device that is holding us back.

    Very cool video. I liked how you took the interview and responded to his arguments by presenting your own thoughts and facts. Nice!

    I think that your topic is very interesting and relates to mine. We also talked about how our generation may be becoming “dumber” because of social networks. However, we had the opposite view as you–we tend to agree that the use of Facebook can be detrimental to our generation’s ability to talk face-to-face.

    Teenagers really care about other teenagers. Are we the dumbest culture because of our technology? We are just moving forward and adapting to the time. I think the guy in this video is dumb. But I do agree the technology has decreased our focus maybe a little bit.

    really interested. what is the connotations of dumb? adapting is very good! I would make that idea stronger instead of focusing on the “dumber” part of your idea. very good information against but more emphasis on your point! but very thought provoking and i like it alot!

    Interesting opening…the voice was too quiet at the beginning and it was hard to hear. It seems like you could also have looked at some points that are true he mentioned. It seems like you were only pointing out how he was wrong. I did like your video and how it left with a question. Good job!

  11. March 10, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I like how you take an “expert’s” opinion and argue it very effectively. The adaptation has helped enhance our knowledge, very well done.

    You address a really good issue. It is definitely thought provoking because it is easy to see both sides to each argument. It was a nicely put together video, good job!

    A very interesting way to look at social media! Great job!

    I have never heard of this man, or his book. This is an interesting subject and I liked the use of different social media network pictures to help prove your point.

    I agree with you. We as a generation choose to make our voices heard through social media networks, just like the hippies in the 60s chose to make their voices heard through a bull horn. However, I think it’s important that we show others that we ARE actually using these social media for good. They won’t believe we aren’t lazy and dumb until they see proof, so we should use this technology to make ourselves at our best.

    Awesome job guys! I really liked the topic you picked and thought your video narration to be extremely well written. I also really thought the interview in the beginning add a very nice touch. I also used narration and narration in order to effectively portray my message that media violence can be harmful on children, however I liked that you used a similar technique to portray your message and stand up for our generation!

    Great video and interesting argument.

  18. March 10, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    The combination of your own argument and supporting facts from experts on the issue made this very informative and provoking. Nice work

  19. March 10, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    Really interesting topic. I liked how you opened with that guy talking about how we are the dumbest generation, and then you elaborated on how in some ways he may be true, but in others he is way off. Great video!

    I really like the way you presented the author’s argument and followed it up with a counter-argument that was clear,strong, and insightful. Well done!

  21. March 10, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    The focus on my project is more on how facebook is negatively impacting towards the world, whereas you take evidence from one of my “experts” and turn it against me. Really well done

  22. March 10, 2011 at 11:22 pm

    Great title, good questions raised throughout

    I like how you questioned his idea of being the dumbest generation and countered it with great points. very well put together. I feel that this could tie in with our video for instance questioning where our generation is heading with media and they way we portray different things in this case our video involved the NBA trades. How can our generation change the way they present these trades so that they aren’t such a main focus in the media.

    Great job on the video! I feel like your opinion was totally valid in this video- our generation is not stupider, it is only evolving. How many people from previous generations know how to navigate the Internet and use technology like we do?

    The inclusion of the video clip before was a good touch good job!

  27. March 11, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    really interesting view of social media…well done!!!

  28. March 11, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    This is very interesting, and something i had heard about, but didn’t know enough about to pursue

    I think this is a very interesting video! I like your arguments.

  30. March 11, 2011 at 10:26 pm

    Great job on your video! I liked that you used clips from the author of “The Dumbest Genereation” and argued against them. You made some good points, saying how we use our social media sites in so-called “smart” ways. I talked about this sort of using social media in a good way. It was nice to see how you looked at more of how we start dialogues that can lead to major change.
