power teaching?

My first thought was WOW! -- this is how I want to teach! The students are paying attention, engaged, hanging on her every word, teaching each other...

Does it work? The more I watch I wonder if it's too busy, are the students just playing a game, talking all at once (some are even talking to classmate's backs?)... are they actually learning the material? I realize "test" is a dirty word among classroom-level educators, but does this method/style produce positive results?

Inquiring minds need to look into this further...*

It helps to start at the beginning; I would love to sit in a classroom all day and observe this in action.
