I just got done viewing the YouTube video “An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube” and who would have ever thought the anthropology could be so engaging. I LOVED this video. It was very long, but really interesting and definitely catches the viewers attention. I spend so much time desperately trying to get through endless boring academic readings for my classes so this was such a pleasant surprise. When something interests us we take so much more away from the experience. It was great the way it tied into the the other video we watched “The Machine is Us/ing Us“. I would much rather learn through this type of medium than struggling to get through a reading that I really could care less about. Being a non-traditional (yeah I know “Old”) student I have very little experience with YouTube. I just signed myself up for account last week and only because I have to for another class. My only experience with YouTube is when my kids force me to come watch a video of a dinosaur farting (very exciting stuff). I loved his participation method of teaching. He had so much to say and the information was so thought provoking and entertaining. As a future educator this seems like a method I would want to implement into my classroom. If we can develop an excitement in learning amongst our students, surely they will keep coming back for more.
