Movie Time!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words....let's see how true that is.  I'd like to present you with about 10,000,000 pictures (including sound!) to see if you think it's worth it. 

Here are a collection of my favorite YouTube videos.  They are educational, entertaining, funny, fascinating, and all around helpful when it comes to teaching & learning.  At least I feel that way.  See what you think of this collection.  (I don't think it will take more than 1 hour to watch them (with the exception of the Randy Pausch lecture...)
