Michael Wesch on how WE learn

How do WE learn in the age of the web? Michael Wesch, known for his YouTube videos “A Vision of Students Today” and “The Machine is Us/ing Us“, talks about anti-teaching and harnessing collective intelligence in his class. He is one of the U.S. Professors of the Year and it was great to have the chance to talk to him!

The most common concern I hear from teachers is how to get 25 to 35 students to work in teams. Wesch gets classes of 400 students together in team to work collaboratively and participate in amazing ways. Collective Intelligence and harnessing it is so critical in the 21st Century. Not only in the USA but all over the work, including here in Mexico where I work with teachers.
