Thanks for the delightful video. I coordinate an afterschool program for middle school students, and the video was a great reminder for keeping students engaged and connected. This week our students participated in a plus and delta evaluation, they basically told us some of Ned's 8. There is a quote that sums up the issue, "If we would only listen and take heart - students have the answers" .
