Thank you so much for sharing this video.

This video proves that point. Education is changing and I guess it shouldn't surprise us that it is so different and that students want to learn and be engaged in new ways because thats how I feel. I enjoy watching online videos and creating projects that allow me to think outside of the box and use what I know so it makes me think that I have to remember that when teaching my future students.
