Show-and-Tell 2.0

I never get tired of watching these two videos. They are just two of many recent Internet videos in which children explain complex political situations with astounding clarity. These go far beyond the “cute kids” genre (although they are that :-)) to show the capability of children to understand and explain our world to us through the medium of video. For example, Nina is the first one who made me understand that the revolution in Egypt is fundamentally an economic one. I encourage children to start producing videos like these. Parents should supervise, of course, but making Internet videos is so technically simple these days that children in primary schools can do it. Internet videos might just become the new Show-and-Tell.
