a vision of students today

Check out this thought-provoking video about undergraduates from cultural anthropologist Michael Wesch:

I’ve been using Rebekah Nathan’s book, My Freshman Year, in my ethnographic writing courses to discuss the experiences of being a college student, but I like the fact the material for Wesch’s video was generated by the students themselves.

  1. wonder what he used for the collective authoring tool. was that Google docs? or something else? how did it start out? what kinds of prompts did he give, if any? I’d like to do something like this, but with 200 students? wow.
