Featured Doer: Karl Fisch

In 2006, Karl Fisch made a PowerPoint presentation for a faculty meeting at Arapahoe High School, just outside of Denver, Colorado. Little did he know it would go viral on the Web eventually being seen by millions of people around the world. The presentation (which
eventually became a video and spawned three
other versions
) became known as the "Did You Know?/Shift Happens" presentation. It chronicles how the world has changed because of globalization, technology, and business practices and begs parents, schools and government officials to pay close attention to the tools children will need to compete in the future.

Using his knowledge of the education system and statistics on population growth and economic development, his series became a powerful wake-up call to the vast changes in store for the next generation.
