Seeking college teachers as collaborators
Michael Wesch, creator of the video essays “The Machine is Us/ing Us” and “A Vision of Students Today” is looking for collaborators who are teaching college courses related to dml and/or the Internet this semester. He’s arranged for videos from the recent Wired for Change conference to be downloaded and freely remixed, and wants to initiate a video contest.
Students who submit the best video on building a more just and equitable Internet for the future will get a free trip to the next Wired for Change conference – a pretty inspiring event: http://www.fordfoundation.org/newsroom/events/451. This year’s videos feature Tim Berners-Lee, Arianna Huffington, Spike Lee, Yochai Benkler, and more. Please contact Mike if you’re interested in creating a class assignment that would get students making these videos: firstname.lastname@example.org.
