PLN 1: Speech

PLN 1:


Summary:

Dr. Michael Wesch’s “A Vision of Students Today” illuminates the fact that students of college, high school, and middle school are not incorporating modern technology in class and are instead using it for personal reasons. Dr. Wesch uses multiple creative ideas by having students write on walls or create signs explaining multiple pieces of information to us.  His main idea is that college students are not able to learn well if they are not able to see the content on the board because of the size of the classroom. Dr. Wesch suggests the United States educational system need to rethink how to better suit technology to kid’s needs.

Summary Response:

Doctor Michael Wesch’s “A Vision of Students Today” correctly depicts that technology is a harmful force to learning because students are not focusing on their homework. Yes, students can listen to music and work, but the music distracts them and they are not really putting any thought into the homework they are doing. If kids are able to use technology freely, what is stopping them from going to Facebook without the teacher knowing it? Dr. Wesch is completely right by saying that technology is hurting learning, but why can’t it monitor what kids are doing in the classroom all the time? There are programs out there that can be put on teacher and student computers so teachers can make sure students are doing work if they are connected to the internet. This way kids can stay on task and help improve the U.S’s world ranking in education.
