Michael Wesch, who some may remember from the viral video The Machine is Us/ing Us is a cultural anthropologist at Kansas State University, but particularly known for his work on digital ethnography, through adding videos to You Tube and a working group at the university.
His most recent idea or work is asking students to submit You Tube videos on their own learning. He’s asked people to tag their classroom and out-of-classroom learning VOST2011. And of course, students have come through, parodying his style, and adding their own narrative to questions of mediation, the classroom, technology and their peers. He posted this call for submissions on January 19th, 2011, and after February 15th he promises to start re-mixing the submitted videos for something new entirely.
