I watched the YouTube video, “A Vision of Students Today (&What Teachers Must Do) by Michael Wesch a few days ago and honestly, I was a little frusterated by it.  I took a few days to let it digest and now I am ready to post my thoughts on it…even Wesch comments, “I recently came to view the video with a sense of uneasiness and even incredulity” (2008).  It was kind of like watching a bunch of kids at a birthday party whine that they didn’t get the big enough piece of cake.  These young adults made the choice to be at school and they should take the opportunity to do something useful there.  I really don’t think it is the instructors job to put on a dog and pony show.  I do think it is the instructors job to create meaningful and engaging work.  I don’t have much more to say here, so I am signing off…
