Well that didn't go as expected...
The original video moved people to remix it. That sold many more Slap Chops. Just google Slap Chop Remix, it is hilarious!
These three examples were meant to show the power of a convincing video. These videos moved people to do something they might not otherwise do on their own.
The final was to show how a student uses video to convince millions of kids to read. If you watch even one video by @thelivbits you can't help but get excited. Check out her website to learn more.
I'm pretty sure my intended outcome was not exactly what I thought it would be. I'm not sure I made the connection strong enough for the teachers. Someone once told me, or maybe I read it somewhere, when something does not go right give yourself time to grieve, feel bad or just let the emotions run but after twenty-four hours you have to let it go. Don't forget what happened but stop letting it get to you. Learn from the mistake or failure but stop letting that control you.
While I might have led some teachers down a confusing path, I will not stop taking chances to figure out how to inspire people. I am sure I will fail and other times I will be successful.
Don't stop trying. The world needs you to take a chance.
