Digital Ethnography

A Kansas State anthropology professor has very actively integrated video and blogging into his teaching efforts. The results are tracked, in part, on his Digital Ethnography blog. While there are plenty of interesting resources (some are easier to understand than others), a great place to start is the heavily publicized video, A Vision of Students Today. While many folks assume that neoeducation is an all or nothing problem, Dr. Wesch seems to be approaching the problem with a critical eye, but finding ways to make the most of the tools and the situation. And, as I hope the Places and Spaces blog shows, I think that there is value to exploring and integration the technologies when you can.
