Dr. Michael Wesch is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Kansas State University. He has created a little bit of a “stir” with some of his you youTube videos. A number of them have had over a million views; one has had as many as 8 million views.
Here’s one of them. “A Vision of Students Today.”
And here is a Keynote address he gave in January in Orlando, Florida: “From Knowledgeable to Knowledge-able: Experiments in New Media.” The beginning is fine (when he talks about Media Literacy), but I think he really starts to shine when he talks about his classes, his teaching and his innovations. The guy is obviously a passionate teacher!
