Teaching, learning, technology and students

I’m frequently asked how teaching and learning have changed over the past decade. What are students like? How are new technologies affecting how you teach and how they learn? That kind of thing.

The video below, produced by a cultural anthropology class at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan., provides part of the answer. You can read some background on how the video was created in this university press release. Although our journalism classes at Conestoga College are considerably smaller (30-35 students per section), a lot of what you’ll see here applies.

Hats off to K-State anthropology professor Michael Wesch, who, upon revisiting the project a year later, had this to say about it.
