25 May A Vision of Students Today

a short video summarizing some of the most important characteristics of students today – how they learn, what they need to learn, their goals, hopes, dreams, what their lives will be like, and what kinds of changes they will experience in their lifetime. Created by Michael Wesch in collaboration with 200 students at Kansas State University.

    Very impressive! Congratulations! It shows a level of students' dissatisfaction with an educational system that values​​traditional values, without intentionality that makes sense with their life and that discourages more than motivates. This reality attested more than ten years ago is still present today, in 2021, in many ways. In a pandemic context in which teachers and students had to migrate forcibly and without prior preparation for the virtual environment, these weaknesses are even more evident. However, the amount of materials produced in this period aimed at training teachers for online teaching and on the use of active learning technologies and methodologies is – and has been – abundant. The big question is: although the term "active methodology" has become a prestigious item, of supposed efficiency and has fallen in the taste of education – and marketing – professionals around the world, it must be remembered that this concept is nothing new. For decades, theorists and teachers like Paulo Freire, Piaget, Skinner, Dewey, all of them repeatedly postulated about the need to treat the human being, the learner, how to be active, responsible for their own learning and who needs mediation – and not of control – from a teacher. That is, theories on the use of innovative techniques, technologies and methodologies have been defended for many years, but very little has changed since then – just remember, again, the wide-open world educational scenario in 2020. Good examples jump out at us and this evidence demonstrates how uneven this quality of teaching and learning is across the globe. And this inequality, in addition to political, social and economic issues, is also due to the excessive traditionalism that still prevails in educational practices.

    In the various aspects indicated by the students, there are aspects that do not derive from technological evolution. For example, the boy who takes the computer to the classroom, but is using it during class for other purposes. If, in a first line, it can indicate that computers in the classroom are factors that divert attention, on the other hand, it is historically common, students are not always attentive to teachers, because, or are talking to the classmate next door, doing drawing or even the classic, a comic book in the middle of the discipline book. And here, in this perspective, is it appropriate to focus attention, because historically, there are students who do other things unrelated to the subject of the lesson? Is it because the class is being monotonous, uninteresting, …? OR is it because the educational model remains the same as pre-computer time? It is quite possibly in the last question that the answer is found.

    The issues, problems and concerns shown by Mesch students in the year of 2007 continue to persist today. The social function of education underlies many of the issues raised by students. For most of them, the content taught has no relevance in their life, the relationships between teachers and students are impersonal and distant and formal reading is increasingly irrelevant. These reflections should change the mindset of those who are involved in the educational process since there is an evident gap between analog and digital culture (embraced by young people), which is not being reflected in our schools. There are, of course, differences between traditional and technology but the aim should be a symbiosis between education and virtuality. Extract the potential, especially in creativity, in order to diversify and improve the teaching process. This is only possible by having a strong structure that can mediate the processes that affect both students and institutions. When used as an open educational resource, it must be ensured that contents have a suitable project previously developed, including critical activities that lead to student-teacher interaction and above all student-student, in order to encourage a participatory culture among all.

    Although this video is a few years old, the message from the students is still very relevant today. Education is about learning. What you learn, what you are educated on should be useful to you in life. I think that is what the students are getting at here. Many of them, upon graduation, will be is debt. Much of what they were educated on will not apply to the job they actually get. The students are letting the educators, and those who run the system, that they would rather learn about budgeting their money, or how to build a career, versus sitting through a lecture that has no bearing on their future employment. While it also costs them an arm and a leg.

    Everyone who decides to follow a teacher/educator career should first watch this video.

    The teaching needs to be immediately restructured.

    Teaching needs passionate, crazy teachers, for the transmission of teachings ( useful ) to the school community.

    Nothing is new in this technological age. The way you explain, how you transmit, that's where you can be original

    The one who prepares a class for three different classes that does it in the same way, does the same exercises hasn't realized the great essence of educating, making people think, preparing to live. Because a teacher is this: an educator, a therapist, a friend.

    Of course, the lack of innovation in the school community isn't only the responsibility of the teacher/educator. There are many external factors (government, for example) that block this development.

    When asked, "What if the walls spoke," they would talk about debited theories, as if it were a sonnet for students who don't even know what a sonnet is, because their poetry is the emojis and the pictures in response in conversation chats.

    While nothing is done we continue to create machines not thinking in rooms full of bodies but of empty minds.

    We don't want that. And you?
