Visions of Students Today - A Video Collage

Over the weekend Michael Wesch and his students launched Visions of Students Today. Many of you may be familiar with A Vision of Students Today which Wesch released three years ago. Visions of Students Today is a video collage that was composed from hundreds of submissions from students all over the world. You can read the full story of the project's creation on Michael Wesch's blog.

Visions of Students Today is not just a video, it's a video collage. You can simply watch the video on YouTube, but if you visit VisionsofStudents.org you can interact with the video. Visions of Students Today was created using HTML5 which allows the creators to link to books, videos, and sites within the video. Go to VisionsofStudents.org and click on the elements you in the video to learn more about them.

Below is the non-interactive version of Visions of Students Today.
