How the Assignment Evolved

"… the basic idea is to create a 3 minute video highlighting 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." (

This is a portion of the assignment Dr. Michael Wesch gave students in his ANTH 200: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. Check out the video at the bottom right to see what they came up with.
