Stimulus overload?

Thinking back over yesterday’s class, I talked about life on other planets, the ethics of randomized control trials, cuckoos, the weaknesses of medical intuition, the hand washing-flu correlation, as well as introducing probability, while also giving feedback on the first blog post, introducing the new pop quiz, running a poll and responding to the comment wall. 

I wonder if this diversity of topics and delivery systems is distracting for the students?   Or does it suit the attention span of a generation raised on video games, internet and cable TV?

That’s an idea: banners scrolling across the bottom of my power points, and ads in sidebars.
