A Vision of Students today

Here’s another video for you, while you’re not fixing those errors inserted into your nice clean code by that pesky WYSIWYG JavaScript text editor that your CMS uses … or checking Facebook for the bejillionth time today.

Also spotted on the IA Institute e-mail list

A short video summarizing some of the most important characteristics of students today – how they learn, what they need to learn, their goals, hopes, dreams, what their lives will be like, and what kinds of changes they will experience in their lifetime. Created by Michael Wesch in collaboration with 200 students at Kansas State University.

When I was at university I didn’t get to make cool videos, I had to sit in a big, cold classroom with a facsimilie of the Rosetta Stone on the wall and learn Hebrew.

Mind you, when I was at university our college didn’t get PCs (Mac Classics) until my 2nd year (1990-91), we had no email, the World Wide Web wouldn’t be invented for another few years, and video cameras probably cost the same as a year’s student grant!

How things have changed! Some for the better (nice shiny technology), and some for the worse (no student grants).
