YouTube - Joe's Non-Netbook

I'll be driving to Flint, Michigan this morning (Cancelled due to weather) to attend a workshop entitled "Michigan Learns Online".  I've been asked to share briefly with this group my vision of how technology will play a part in learning.  I've selected the following video about a student who is frustrated by his history textbook.  The pictures aren't hyper-linked to more information, the text can't be enlarged, and saving information is difficult.  It's a mean't to be humorous, but it highlights the first principle of Universal Design for Learning - "Multiple Means of Representation to give learners various ways of acquiring information and knowledge."  In what other ways does this video demonstrate the need for integrating technology with learning and teaching?
