There is a lot to be learned as a teacher from Matt’s video. It has had over 46 million views on YouTube and more than 260,000 likes. Obviously it is what people engage with very strongly. As teachers we are always talking about engagement. Matt went to 42 countries and took 14 months to make this video. Time and money were obviously not an issue, but it is an example of how students can reach for the stars in their work. Shakespeare often used to set his plays in Italy and Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days was highly acclaimed and well loved. We have always like to know we can be somewhere else meeting other people. We have always wanted to connect. In 3 minutes the video shows some of the most amazing places on the planet. Matt then is brave enough to do a little dance in each of these places and , more often than not, others join in and you know what? They are happy. They are glad to be together. So the recipe is simple – put some joy into lessons and let people connect as real people as they learn together. Give them hope and give them something achievable. Matt has made quite a few of these videos now which can all be found on YouTube.
