Another Michael Wesch video: A vision of students today

If you haven’t seen it, definitely worth a look. Particularly if you want to try and understand even a smidgen of what it means to be Generation M/Y.  I could give you a more detailed assessment, but there’s a risk that I spoil it for you. It’s only about 4 minutes long anyway, so I’m going to leave well enough alone.

Linked here, and in my VodPod in the sidebar as well.

Let me know what you think.

  1. JP, I’ve been following the discussion for quite a while now, but I thought I’d join. Kudos to Michael and the folks at Kansas State– it rings true.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Wow. I can remember learning to code using punchcards to feed the mainframe card reader months before wall to wall McIntoshes filled the IT suite at university. Now it’s all changed again.

    I’ve forwarded the YouTube link to my professor husband who’s well ahead of the curve. He’s also a William Gibson fan . . .

  3. The main message I saw in this is that students are lazy, self-centered and shallow.

    “I facebook through most of my classes”

    yep, that’s time well spent.

Let me know what you think
