By the way, the 19th century is over

I came across this great video whilst over at Cool Cat Teacher's blog and it just about sums up everything I've been trying to do via my lessons over the last few years. As well as teaching English I've been trying to impart to my students, irrespective of age, how we are now part of a truly global economy and that much of we'll need in the future can not be found in the antiquated education system they have to endure.

It's good to know that there are forward thinking teachers such as yourself in today's classroom.

Thank you for that. I think that in education in Greece, and lots of other European countries there is the notion that the future is somebody else's problem.
