Students Today - a YouTube video

I attended a book talk tonight for ‘The Kids are Alright’ by John C. Beck. It was somewhat unusual as the talk was held at the DEN in SL (Discovery Educator Network in Second Life). You could see our avatars (representations of our characters) typing away in mid-air as we responded excitedly to each others' posts. However, Second Life is a post for another day ...

One of the participants posted the website for the video A Vision of Students Today. What began as a 200 student Wiki collaboration emerged as a video. I found it to be thought-provoking and a great opening for discussion. I hope you do, too.
