More from Arne Duncan:

...  Today's going to be a fun day, but this event speaks to something much bigger.

That's because these students' films all illustrate the critical conversation about education in our country right now: the importance of connecting our classrooms.

The fact is that right now, only around 30% of our students have the high-speed Internet access they need for digital learning. That means millions of kids across the country aren't currently benefiting from the kinds of technologies that made the student films you'll watch today possible.

The President's ConnectED initiative is making sure that changes -- by connecting 99 percent of students to next-generation, high-speed broadband within five years.
Newflash, Arne. It doesn't take a computer to teach a child to read, and half the children "graduating" high school have reading skills that are inadequate for college work. But hey, who cares. More computers here!
