A Portal to Media Literacy - Presented by Michael Wesch

Michael Wesch is a Professor of Cultural Anthropology and Digital Ethnography at Kansas State University. Over the last couple of years Dr. Wesch and his students have produced some fantastic videos about today's students, the changing culture of today's students, and how those cultural changes should impact classroom instruction. I've featured Dr. Wesch's most well known video, A Vision of Students Today, on this blog in the past. Today, I'd like to share with you a video of a lecture that Dr. Wesch recently gave at the University of Manitoba. The video is long, about an hour, but as Liz Davis who tipped me off to the video via Twitter said, "worth every minute."
