Rethinking Education

Every now and again there comes a video that changes your perspective or makes you say “yeah, that’s right I wish the politicians and the administrators would see this!”

It is a video by a Professor of Anthropology at Kansas State University called Mike Wesch. He first came to public and YouTube attention with a video he made in 2007 called “The Machine is Us/ing Us” which has so far had over 11 million hits!

Professor Wesch has certainly got his finger on the pulse of our changing digital world. I feel that this latest video will no doubt be seen by millions as his other videos have…… I only hope that some of the movers and shakers of our world are able to see it and sit up and take note….. as Bob Dylan would say “The Times They Are a Changing!” and Education (at any level) needs to change ( actually it needed to change yesterday!!)

With thanks to Dr Angela Maiers for the Facebook link!!
