I love that technology allows us to share and view short videos easily. A quick two minute video or a 20 minute TED talk can be so inspiring. It might remind us of something to which we had a previous connection or it might open a window to new ideas that we continue to explore.

And near the end a child states:
I like to play to learn and when I am playing I don’t want to stop.
