Did You Know (4.0)? and Mindset Lists

Over the past several years, Karl Fisch has gotten a lot of press for his work with others (XPLANE, The Economist, Laura Bestler, and earlier Scott McLeod, Jeff Brenman, and Sony/BMG Music) for his "Did You Know? (Shift Happens)" videos.  See the latest version (4.0) at TeacherTube, or view past iterations at the Shift Happens wiki.

Also, for the past 12 years Beloit College (WI) surveys incoming freshmen and publishes an annual Mindset List.  This list attempts to explain how each year's student cohort starts the year with a unique set of experiences that sets them apart from others and from the faculty who teach them.  While our P-12 population may be younger, it certainly helps us gain perspective and set the tone for a new school year.  After you click the link, make sure to use the drop-down menu near the top center of the window to view past lists, too!
