Did You Know? Video Edition 3.0 (Official)

Takeaway: This video provides an eye-opening look at the rapid progression of technology and social media in the global Age of Information.

Some of you will already be familiar with the "Did You Know?" video. The video - which you can watch right now below - began as a PowerPoint slideshow by Colorado middle school math teacher, Karl Fisch. Karl debuted the original presentation at a 2006 faculty meeting to fuel discussion with fellow teachers on how to prepare students for success in the technology-driven 21st century. This is the latest version, updated most recently in 2018.

I'm a huge fan of this video. I even used Did You Know? in a corporate seminar series about the speed of technology and the value of lifelong learning for a popular computer training firm. From executives and department heads to apprentice technicians and civilians, this thought-provoking video never failed to elicit ideas and interesting discussion. I hope it does the same for you. Enjoy!

Bonus: Did You Know? is the most comprehensive video, however there are some specialized versions, such as Did You Know? 4.0 which was created for The Economist magazine and highlights media convergence trends. Explore more releases on YouTube by searching "did you know" and "shift happens."
