I Wanna Be An Edu-Pundit, The Video
A few months ago, one of Eduflack's college buddies, David Kazzie, hit the viral big time when he launched an online video entitled So You Want to Go to Law School. Kazzie was one of the hardest-working sports writers I knew at The Cavalier Daily, and although he turned to the dark side by getting a law degree, it was terrific to see those writing skills finally put to use with an incredibly funny series of videos on all that is wrong with the law profession.
So it all got me thinking. It seems the education space could use a few videos that poke fun at our own industry. And while I am hardly the dialogue writer that Kazzie is, I decided to pick up my electronic pen and write, I Wanna Be an Edu-Pundit. I Wanna Be offers a tongue-in-cheek look at some of those "experts" in the education space, and what happens when someone wakes up one morning thinking they should opine on education policy and practice.
The full video can be found here on YouTube.
Depending on the response I get from folks, I'm hoping to make this a semi-regular activity for the first few months in 2011. There are just some things that can best be said through the computerized voices of animated talking heads.
So consider this my little holiday gift to you. Please watch, and please get other people to watch. Together, we can at least get more people to watch this video than watch a typical U.S. Department of Education YouTube post!
