A vision of students today

Dr. Michael Wesch, an anthropologist at Kansas State University, created a video summary of students. Although created in 2007, the characteristics described are amplified by students today. The video effectively lists characteristics of students focusing on “what they learn, how they learn, hopes, goals and dreams.’

The video, a Vision of Students Today can be accessed here.

As I reflect on the statements in the video, I am reminded that how we learn and how we teach must adapt to our changing world. The experienced instructors who knows subject matter well must be willing to discover best practices for delivering the material well. Understanding our students and the capabilities of modern technology enhance the learning experience for everyone.

What are your thoughts on the description of students? What connections need to be established for instructors and students to create successful learning experiences?
