A Vision of Students Today

A colleague of mine sent this video to me today and I just felt the need to pass it on. It is a very interesting look into the lives of today's students and the structured classroom. Education is changing. Social networking, or Web 2.0, is changing the way students learn, interact and experience life.

It will be interesting to see what another 10 years will bring and how our students of tomorrow (Maya) will embrace education and technology.

I just read the entire blog you put up for your daughter. I found it because of a White Wolf post that showed your video of her named "Deer Whisperer." I was just knocked out by your daughter's energy and internal sense of understanding of the world around her. Many pretty spectacular children are here right now and it was a real pleasure meeting another one of them. My compliments for your part in her growth and development. You have no recent post and no comments. I hope that doesn't mean you're no active. I'd like to see more. Maya is entirely delightful. Your subscribe button isn't working, either. So. I'd subscribe if I could.

I also really enjoyed your video, "A Vision of Students Today." It really made some strong points. I've been interested in educational reform for many years, but my version of it isn't complete for the lack of many elements mentioned in this video, mostly just due to my age and the differences technology has made in the way people think, but I can see my version with these updated ideas in it and that sounds pretty good to me.
