``First off, I have to say - what an impactful talk that truly addresses some of the issues of standard educational systems in this time of rapid technological evolution! I think Wesch hits home when addressing how his university students don't find the topics in class relatable(zing!). It makes perfect sense that students today, who are so easily connected to information that they would feel the impetus to be involved in that interconnected world. The cold, disjointed and solitary classrooms of yesteryear seem archaic in the wake of open media, social media, and the genuine interactive drive of Web 2.0(and 3.0). I will say though, that this talk seems dated to me. Even within the past 6 years, the web has evolved dramatically and tools have changed beyond the types of communication Wesch describes. Students are increasingly familiar with the internet and with the proliferation of smartphones, we have seen a meteoric rise in applications for student involvement.
