Viral Video Of The Week: A Vision Of Students Today

2008 will be my 20-year high school reunion. My twins also will be turning 4, which means just another two years before they enter the first grade. While waxing nostalgic and at the same time pondering their future academic careers, I came across an interesting video I wanted to share. It's titled "A Vision of Students Today" and sheds a little light on what it means to be in one of today's learning institutions and how technology has affected student lives.

Here's the description:

"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."

To say things are different now for these kids than they were for us would be an understatement. I can only wonder what high school and college life will be like for my boys when they reach that time -- and what technologies will propel them through it.
