Karl Fisch created Shift Happens, the most favourited presentation on SlideShare. In April 2007, Michael Arnold got the high school teacher's permission to take it to the next level by turning it into a video.

Fisch discusses global shifts occurring and the impact globalization will have on education, from kindergarten to higher education.

Thanks to the upgrade to video, his message became a viral internet phenomenon.

However, unlike most viral videos, this clip didn't just have a quick lived success. Over a year later, the video is still being passed around with enthusiasm, and the message of the Arapahoe High School administrator continues to awe and inspire viewers.

Since its release, the video has been updated with a second clip, titled “Did You Know?” As a result of its success, Fisch launched the Shift Happens Wiki to supplement the videos. He also published The Fischbowl, a blog with her personal views.

The video, posted in February 2007, has had 3,808,807 views at time of writing this article. The video featured, however, is newer but hasn't had quite as many views yet. Stats for Educational Virals Trending: Older & Average
