An Inspiring Message Regarding Language and Technology

Thank you to Ana Maria Menezes (  for sharing this video. 

I saw this video posted on Ana's blog and decided to watch it.  I was thinking about it from two different perspectives - teaching with technology and teaching deaf students.  There is a lot to ponder.  I found it especially interesting that not having the language of the topic did not impede the acquisition of knowledge. 
 A couple of his quotes that I especially find interesting:
"If children have interest then education happens."
"Children will learn to do what they want to learn to do."

What can you do with this information?
