A Vision of Students Today

Cultural anthropologist Michael Wesch and 200 students at Kansas State University created this video summarizing 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 how the world will change during their lifetime. It’s enlightening and interesting information for all of us who have been out of school for years. Things certainly have changed since I got my diploma twelve years ago.

  5. It's much easier to access any kind of information nowadays and I believe that should be the biggest reason to stop treating our heads like a hard disk.

    Experience is what counts the most and with the necessary informations at hand, it will all come down to one's willingness to improve himself.
