That's interesting.. All my high school teachers attempt to make class fun or interesting in their own little ways. Occasionally we'll be able to use our phone's to look stuff up, it helps more than it hurts. Being an average idiot, who doesn't really do homework and the etc I'm running a 75% average just off class being interesting and worth me paying attention to.
I can obviously spell, utilize grammar correctly, and I have no real way of proving the math, but I assure you I can do it.

Media and education should be separated IMO. One thing you do for recreation while the other is to learn.
FFT: News is media, do you learn from the news?
Difference between learning something from a newspaper or a news TV show and looking it up in class instantly please?
