Story of Stuff

Okay, I'm posting this for the simple reason that I love the video and I love the message of the video. That said, I think I can also make a good argument for taking a look at this 20 min "documentary" for lack of a better word in the educational setting--our students can and should be contributing this type of content to the web. It's what Web 2.0 is all about---authorship. And what connects better with people, with kids, especially with teenagers, than digging into something they value, expressing their opinions about something important, and having a real audience for their work?

Take a look, and while the message is great, think beyond the content to "how can our students create something like this?"
