I am laughing about the ractions of the students. I am sorry you feel that way. I have used all of those technology when I was a kid (I'm 32-years-old now).
Sometimes I wish to go back in time with the mobile phones and the computer, raising my children that way. I loved the encyclopedia on my old computer which I used for my little school essays. I saved all those essays on my floppy disc, I even still have one at home.
Good luck with your students, they sounds lovely.
