Bringing "childishness" into the mathematics classroom

Why would you show a Sesame Street video to a senior Year 12 mathematics classroom? Is there any value is doing paper folding exercises with such a class?  Here's my thoughts on the value of bringing "childishness" into every mathematics classroom - no matter the age group or the current achievement level, presented at a recent conference.
