Rethinking Education - Do You Want to be a Part?

Rethinking Education is a new video from Dr. Michael Wesch. I saw the video on Dr. Scott McLeod's blog yesterday and have since watched it twice and listened to just the audio once (the value for me was almost the same without the visuals). The video is embedded below and my reflections are below it.

Replace "printing" at the beginning of the video with "creating" and you have the reason I like Web 2.0 tools for publishing interactive texts, producing videos, and sharing acquired knowledge.

The discussion of what is good knowledge or good information is a discussion that should happen whether the information is online or in print.

Links are very important.
