“Shift Happens” or “Did you know” is a PowerPoint presentation that first surfaced in 2006 in a US high school. It soon went viral, and various other versions created. I came across it when visiting open evenings at secondary schools.
A 2013 version is available on Vimeo, and well worth 6 minutes of anyone’s time, if nothing else to reflect on why do we teach what we do, how do we address globalisation and what will we do with rapidly changing technology.
I will be shamelessly using a couple of the ideas in my presentation next week at our Partnerships Conference at Staffordshire University.
