If you missed our post on Did You Know? 3.0, here’s a little history: the videos started out as a PowerPoint for a faculty meeting at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado in the fall of 2006.

According to Fisch and co-creator Scott McLeod:

Today the old and new versions of the online presentation have been seen by at least 20 million people, not including the countless others who have seen it at conferences, workshops, training institutes, and other venues.
