The Networked Student

With thanks to LoneWolfLibrarian and to Michael Stephens, I must draw attention to The Networked Student. This useful little video by which uses the commoncraft style of presentation. It is a wake-up call to teachers and librarians! Telling how students will gather their information and share it, at one point it asks "will they need a teacher?" The justification for one gives a whole list of roles which sound amazingly like those of a Web 2.0 librarian! Take a look!

The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler’s high school students.

Simple, yet poignant. That sums it up for me! Kudos to the producers.
