This video explores the human connections through video, and how video has changed or enhanced interactions on the internet. It was created for a digital ethnography class at Kansas State.
A short video summarizing some of the most important characteristics of students today - how they learn, what they need to learn, their goals, hopes, dreams, what their lives will be like, and what kinds of changes they will experience in their lifetime. Created by Michael Wesch in collaboration with 200 students at Kansas State University.
