A New(er) Season?

By now most of you have heard of the buzz words "digital native" and "digital immigrant." But in case these don't seem significant to Academic teaching take a look at the video "Pay Attention," and the digital knowledge students will have who will be in college within this decade. It is also a good way to help alert administrators to the needs library instructors have to reach students. What impressed me was the slide which noted that most students have the opportunity to ask a question only once in 10 hours.

I deliberately chose the web page for "Pay Attention" in order that you could see the variety of ways to access a video online as well as be aware of TeacherTube. While it may be more for K-12, at least three of the examples retrieved under a search for "library" were from an academic library here and here and here.
Do you have any videos to share?
