004.09 Did You Know 4.0: Stats about Our Current World

Ok, it is time to be reminded that what we have been doing in the 2.o world is NOT being done in isloation...we are playing and learning and testing and learning and practicing and learning the very things that more and more of the world is doing every day as a part of its normal, everyday world.
Is it a perfect world? No. Is it a totally safe way to do the business of everyday life? No. But neither is the other world!
It will take you a little more than 3 minutes to catch up with the latest and be reminded that it is ok to move forward and think differently, communicate differently, react differently, and most importantly in our little education corner of the world, learn differently!

Enjoy the current update of the wildly popular Shift Happens.


P.S. I'm intrigued by the method used in creating the text strips and some of the graphics. Pretty cool and worth the time as well!

In case the embedded video is blocked in district, here is the link. You should be able to see it through teacher sign-on of your computer.

Perfect timing for this post - I am redoing the Isafe curriculum so I actually present it using the internet (how is that for a radical concept) and this video is going into the presentation.
Thanks!

This is another great video in the "Shift Happens" series. XPlane, the visual thinking company, produced the video. They combine left and right brain collaborative elements in their production. The video will be highlighted in the media convergence forum sponsored by The Economist on Oct. 20, 21 in New York City.
