Web 2.0 Learning Revolutionary Mike Wesch: “Media Literacy” What’s Wrong With Our Educational System Today

Kansas State Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology Mike Wesch, author and creator of the hit youtube video The Machine is Us/ing Us fame, has done the improbable–he has literally become the voice for millions of frustrated students across the nation.

The following video “A Portal To Media Literacy” is the MOST IMPORTANT video you will ever watch in regards to your educational experience, learning tendencies, and overall happiness with your institution of “higher learning.”

5 Questions To Ask Yourself

1. Do you have the time to research your own future even if it takes 1hour and 6 minutes?

2. Do you spend the time to understand why you dislike your institution’s methods of “information dump” aka teaching?

3. Does your ego driven faculty, more concerned with their own authoritarian agendas than your overall education, stunt your desire to learn in and out of the classroom?

4. Are you fed up and aware that the content of your learning may not have any basis in the REAL WORLD?

5. Do you feel that your college-university’s goal is to generate revenue, by adding unwanted and irrelevant curriculum forcing students into 4 year commitments, rather than to teach and prepare students for their futures?

Watch this video and NEVER feel the same about your learning expectations again!
