Michael Wesch, an assistant professor of cultural anthropology at Kansas State University, has previously published his widely popular The Machine is Us/ing Us video. Since then he has made a new short video – A Vision of Students Today, which I first found through Paul Stamatiou’s blog.
It’s an absolutely fantastic video, that creates a snapshot of the student life and education.
I found most of the student made observations to be spot on, with just a minor exception:
The highlight point was probably the fact that we, as students, do 26.5 hours of things per day. I wonder if it gets any better after the graduation? In the video, “some have suggested that technology alone can save us”. Thought the students honestly admitted that they “facebook through class”.
A student’s life could be hectic, and it seems that while at school – we do everything but study. My interesting “while at University” fact — I write more for this blog, than I do for all of the classes this term!
