Linda Martinez Comm286 Critique paper PART I. The article I will be summarizing is Technology Among Students . Basically it says, it says that college presidents understand or they notice that online courses have the same value as classes taken in a lecture hall, but the public do not see…that…the same value. They think that …online courses have a lesser value than lecture halls. And also that online courses are becoming more available to college students. Mainly in public schools, there is a higher percentage for the public schools to offer them then private schools. And that also that computers are becoming more acceptable to use in classrooms.

And over 80% say they use a smart phone daily.

I believe I did this because I knew I was toward the end and just wanted to finish it. This is not a good mind sight to have because then I will always do that in a speech and the audience will not understand. If the audience does not understand then their views are different from the presenter and this could determine a success or failure in a company . I need to learn to control my speed .
