Regrouping is the term used now for what most of us grew up referring to as 'borrowing', but is basically the same process. By using the regrouping model students learn the logical/conceptual relationships at work behind the logarithm. (The youtube video left that part out, obviously.)

It is true that American schools have long since abandoned the Base 8 model.
