Mediated Cultures.net is a project of Michael Wesch’s designed as an exploration of the role of emerging media in cultures. Last week I shared with you Wesch’s extremely popular and thought provoking video about today’s student. (Click the word video to watch it).
Today I came across a simulation activity Wesch does with his anthropology students to explore the systems of the world over the last 500 years. While the activity is designed for college undergrads it could easily be adapted for high school students. Watch the introductory video below and then visit Wesch’s website to learn more about the activity.
