In 1995, prophetic fifth graders predict Internet of the future

Talk about waiting for a payoff: Back in 1995, a group of fifth graders led by a clearly visionary video teacher named Cindy Gaffney created a PSA to get kids on the Internet. Eighteen years later, it is finally going viral.

The video is kind of awkward and stilted, but its message is so ahead of its time, and prophetic, it’s kind of mind-boggling.

“By the time we are in college, the Internet will be our telephone, television, shopping center and workplace,” the kids say.
