    I couldn`t concentrate on the lecture becuase the guy is Italian but he sounds so Jewish and then drawings were so cool they wer distracting. Plus it was way long.

    yeah, it never said video games were bad, just that technology is changing us. this is not necessarily in a bad way, just that the elders need to learn how to connect with the new class of human in their youth. the problem with school and teaching may get better as the people who grew up with this kind of "wiring" are now teaching the kids with the same "wiring".

    Stopped watching when it meandered into generic videogame bashing, and when he grossly misused the words "digital" and "analogue".

    this was really amazing.... Really eye opening. My family has always had sit-down meals together. my friends always thought that was weird, but cool at the same time. I`ve always felt sort of as an anomaly in my generation- we didn`t have cable till I was 12 or video games until this christmas when my parents bought a Wii. I think this has made me a different kind of person- not better or anything, because I kind of miss not being able to have the same memories of childhood as my peers, but I also understand why my parents did what they did, and I`m glad for it. I think I might do the same to my children (if I have any). I don`t feel like that is the best way or necessarily better than others or that my kids will agree, but I do know that I appreciated it and I`m glad my parents did.

    "this guy is inducing hedonism for the viewers by illustrating his lecture, thus providing instant gratification."

    I was thinking the same thing while watching, but I`m pretty sure he`s not the one who illustrated it. I have a feeling the people who did totally had that in mind while they were doing it, probably actually inspired by the presentation so that they could get more people to listen what this guy had to say.

    I wish I could meet this cat.

    1. Education before 200 years ago - almost entirely parent to child, children being raised to work under the parent then, take the parents` places.
    2. Industrial age begins - people spend more time away from home to work in groups, decreasingly working with family members. Education increasingly happens away from home, becomes more uniformed.
    3. Jump to information age - people spend even less time together in analog situations.

    Education just needs to catch up.
    I can see a day when people will be required to augment their homes with educational interfaces rather than mandatory school attendance.

    that was great, thanks for the post. today, i was in a car with a 7 and 9 year old and it`s true, it seems they cannot cope without stimulation for more than ten minutes at the very most. i suppose if this thirst for stimulation equates to new answers to lifes problems then we may be entering a new age of enlightenment but, sadly, i doubt it. i hope you prove me wrong kids.

    I completely agree with education being an interactive thing, if the people could control what they learned it would better suit the individual. Say I have no interest in the french revolution, or america`s historical upbringing, but I want to learn advanced calculus by the time I`m 14. I should be able to do that, but I didn`t get that kind of luck. Maybe my kids will.

    some of it is true, but i find the age-oriented stuff to be definitely biased. each generation somehow thinks that the next generation is completely and totally different, and usually in a worse way; this is consistent going back centuries, `we didn`t used to do this, that, etc.`, when in fact, they did. they chose to selectively change the past to make their generation seem more focused on certain aspects that they value later in life, when the reality is that when you`re a teenager, you`re a dumbass, and when you`re an adult, you`re less of a dumbass.

    This is really not the point of the video, but the idea of an 8-day week is ridiculous. Dividing days into weeks is basically arbitrary. If it wasn`t for the fact that we have a schedule that may differ from day to day but be consistent each week, we could, for all intents and purposes, be living in an 8-day week right now.

    I didn`t get the impression that he was "blaming" video games. It was more pointing out that the way children are learning is being changed by an interactive aspect which is making analog learning sort of out of date.

    Well, yes he blamed video games, but at least he didn`t append "which makes them kill people". I think we as a culture moved passed that and he was just using it as an example of how radically different our lives are to previous generations.
