302. Quickie Web: Video: Web 2.0 is Us/ing Us April 27, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Quickie Web, Video.

Created by Kansas State U. cultural anthropology professor Michael Wesch, this 4.5 minute music video demonstrates the power and potential of Web 2.0 without spoken word. It was viewed 1.8 million times on Youtube in in its first six weeks. I was moved to tears by the end of the clip, and not really sure why. Via Wired.

I have a strange feeling this video documents only the tip of an iceberg for creating communities of learning. This video inspires and invites a digital immigrant like myself to indeed go ahead, give myself permission, and rethink everything and see what happens rather than worrying what’s “around the corner”. Could it be that “what’s-around-the-corner” is just something we’ve created in our minds? These tools are inviting us all to re-invent, re-interprete, re-think everything! What fun! I really hope our school leaders are watching! What could Web 2.0 for mean for the future of learning. How might we imagine our world transforming through the inventive and as yet unknown uses of these tools? Tools that our kids are using everyday at home, in the cafes and other venues.
