Putting Technology in the Hands of our Students

I was recently preparing for a presentation for Texas ASCD about One of the things I wanted to show was how to upload a video from to I googled for instructions and the first video that I clicked was the one below. I was amazed that I was getting instructions from a 10 year old. Not only was I getting instructions, but I was watching a full scale production with advertisements. Just when I think I am doing a great job of implementing technology in schools I realized how far behind I am. I wonder how this child is being challenged in his school? I wonder if he just can't wait to get home so he make his own tutorials about the lesson that day to show the teacher?
