Michael Wesch and the Future of Education

I completely forgot where I found this, as it's been sitting in my saved Firefox 3 tabs for a few days now, so apologies for the lack of attribution. This excellent talk by Michael Wesch (the guy that brought you the Youtube video "the machine is using us") gives a great view on what learning and teaching really should be like.

If you don't have time to watch the whole thing, at least have a look at the first 10 minutes, which will already give you some great ideas on the paradigms in which education seems to be stuck, an dhow to perhaps get beyond those.
