  1. I think that this would have made great Blog post assignment and this video blew me away. I think that her point about listening to students and having them help teach the class is a new and interesting idea. She gives many great point to support her idea and brings to light all of the great things that kids/ students are already doing today. There is no telling where education will be in 10 years because just what has changed since I graduated high school boggles my mind. I think this is one of the best ideas I have seen or heard and thank you for finding it and sharing it.
