Last week, the “Look Up” video went viral. In the words of the Sydney Morning Herald, it’s a video urging people “to take a break from their online lives to experience real connections.”

This week, the “CNA – Speaking Exchange” video is being shared.¬†It’s a video connecting Brazilian students wanting to improve their English language skills with seniors in the United States¬†living in retirement homes (it reminds me of Sugatra Mitra’s Skype Granny project)

Discuss.
