    Michael Wesch video - July 2008 - good critique of the state of education and our failure to keep up with changes

    I have to admit that I'm a big fan of Prof Wesch. His "The machine is using us" video on YouTube is still one of my favourite Web2.0 resources. He's going to be one of the keynote speakers at the ALT-C conference in September this year...the conference has a terrible sounding theme.." 'In dreams begins responsibility' - choice, evidence, and change "...yuk.

    This is a long presentation - but the middle bit is an exercise which can be skipped - about the problems of sharing good practice in education - well worth watching given that a lot of what we do is that.

    At last...I found the link I was looking for. I started to watch this and got drawn into the fact that it was done with the Echo360 system that we use. It looks like a different version of the system though. I've always wondered how worthwhile video is in these cases but I found myself quite liking the video. Maybe that's because I'm a "distance learner". Perhaps video isn't as necessary for people who were at the presentation and are using this for review?

    I've watched most of it so far. I also really appreciate the video - I think the inclusion of it does help you feel more like you are part of a human group. Now, I'd also appreciate the other delivery methods echo does (e.g. ipod) for reviewing something, but it is good to have options to tailor to the individual. I also like the (new?) possibility of switching the layout so that the video is the 'larger' screen some (but not all) of the time. Mostly comments on the software, but the talk was interesting too!
