"We are educating students today for jobs that do not exist yet, to use technologies that have not been invented yet, to address problems that we are not aware of yet."
Did You Know? originally started out as a PowerPoint presentation for a faculty meeting in August 2006 at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado, United States. The presentation "went viral" on the Web in February 2007 and, as of June 2007, had been seen by at least 5 million online viewers. Today the old and new versions of the online presentation have been seen by at least 20 million people, not including the countless others who have seen it at conferences, workshops, training institutes, and other venues.
Karl Fisch has been teaching for over 25 years; he now serves as Director of Technology at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado. He also runs an education blog, The Fischbowl.
The following version, updated to early 2012, was created by David S. Rose for use in the Finance, Entrepreneurship and Economics program at Singularity University.
