In the Michael Wesch video, “A Vision of a Student Today,” technology is becoming the main source of learning because that is how our world is moving forward. One example I thought was interesting was the girl will read 8 books, 2300 web pages, and 1281 Facebook profiles in that year. Another example is that the guy will buy hundred dollar textbooks that he will never open. Where is he going to get the information he needs other than from the teacher’s mouth? On his computer, the Internet. Our world is moving forward by using primarily technology for our source of information. Other than what teachers tell us, the Internet is where us students get the majority of our information. Technology is becoming a main source of learning and soon will be the main source.
