Michael Wesch and the Future of Education

Michael Wesch and the Future of Education | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Dubbed “the explainer” by popular geek publication Wired because of his viral YouTube video that summarizes Web 2.0 in under five minutes, cultural anthropologist Michael Wesch brought his Web 2.0 wisdom to the University of Manitoba on June 17 (see video above).

During his presentation, the Kansas State University professor breaks down his attempts to integrate Facebook, Netvibes, Diigo, Google Apps, Jott, Twitter, and other emerging technologies to create an education portal of the future.

“It’s basically an ongoing experiment to create a portal for me and my students to work online,” he explains. “We tried every social media application you can think of. Some worked, some didn’t.”

I like Michael Wesch a lot and I think your scoop.it site is very good. However, this video is from 2008 and does not represent Wesch's current thinking at all. - Jim Lerman

I am very glad that I saw this video at a somewhat early age (in college).  15 years, later, it is equally powerful and truthful.

History of personal computers (Triumph of The Nerds)

A WONDERFUL 1996 documentary about the history of personal computers.  It includes interviews with all of the key players.

 

Key take-away.  The men who made the first spreadsheet did not choose to profit.  They say that this revolution is due to the mentality of the 1960s of working hard to make the world better, not just for money.

OK, I was wrong. It is mostly the negative. But it is positive (to me) to view how far we have come since the plow and the stone to tell if gold is real via the mark it makes.
Intriguing video.
