Kansas State University Professor Michael Wesch, well-known within the YouTube community for the series of innovative videos he created in collaboration with his media and anthropology students, as part of their digital enthography of YouTube project (read their blog), posted an intriguing new video last month titled "Twitter and World Simulation":
I really look forward to Prof. Wesch’s upcoming DevCon 2008 keynote address — next month in Las Vegas. I know that reads like a plug for the conference. And, well, yeah, it is, sure. But I really am excited to hear Prof. Wesch speak in person — I’m traveling to the conference a day early, to ensure I won’t be trapped in an airport three states away while waiting for a connecting flight that for some reason never arrives.
Until DevCon, over on the BlackboardTV Channel on YouTube, there’s a playlist that may interest you, The Future Is Now. We’ve collected a series of interesting videos — recommended by Blackboard users and found by BlackboardTV crew members — that visualize the use of technology in teaching and learning, including more videos by Prof. Wesch and his students.
