Did You Know? / Shift Happens by Karl Fisch: A Must See Video

This video was bubbling around the web a bit recently, although apparently it all stems back to a research presentation compiled originally by Karl Fisch, the Director of Technology for Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado. It has since been remixed, enhanced, redesigned and used for many purposes including a recent Sony BMG executive meeting in Rome. It is an amazingly well put together state of global technology, media and education, and I thank Karl for providing me with the version I was looking for!

Karl and his staff received two grants in 2005 to improve teacher and student use of technology to achieve curricular goals, to help transform their school to a more student-centered, constructivist approach, and to prepare the students to succeed in the 21st century. While technology was certainly a big part of this proposal in terms of dollars, the heart of our proposal was staff development. You can learn more about this impressive bunch on their main blog, appropriately named the Fischbowl.

    Thank you for the background information. You say that the video has been remixed and enhanced from its original version. Do you know who did the reproduction?
