If the student is watching a video, there can be no interaction. This generation already has enough problems with face-to-face communication. Also, how well constructed can the lesson be if a student can have a question in the beginning of the video that doesn’t get answered until the next day? This sounds like a way of forcing technology into education instead of using it as a tool to enhance learning. This is a dangerous slope to go down and clearly one that the BOE (which is responsible for policy creation), must be well aware of before implementation.
