Ripped From the Headlines

The article/video I have posted was taken from “The Today Show” this morning.  It is about a boy in Texas who cannot physically attend school because of a weakened immune system, so he instead attends as an avatar. This is a cool video, but also an indicator of where education and technology are heading in the future.  http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/41641984/ns/today-today_health/
