Starts a tad slow, but it really seems incredible and very applicable; Please watch the entire clip. Solutions like these need to start being pushed harder and not what we are doing now to 'fix' education.

I think this is great for supplemental material. I, often, link to his video clips on my teacher page but my guess is less than 5% of my students actually watch them. I will, occaisionally, show one in class, usually, as reinforcing material because I find the chemistry series tends to be a little high for high schoolers. I'd like to see more material like this on the high school level. I plan on doing my own clips similar to this (my Smart board works a little different than the one he's using but I can do similar style recordings) for the upcoming school year. I LOVE the idea that kids can go back and watch them again and again. The $50,000 question is will they?
