It's hard to clearly recognize and analyze all the dynamics of a revolution as you're in the middle of it. But floods of books and blog posts are all attempting to do just that. In my opinion, one of the most fundamental dynamics: The Hack Mindset.
The Hack Mindset is the spectrum opposite of Status Quo. Nothing is "just the way it is." Nothing goes unquestioned. Nothing goes untried. Hacking equals creative innovation. Hacking equals fearlessness. Hacking says, "Maybe we can do better. And maybe we can't, but we won't know until we try." It's the mindset that Logan is inheriting AND helping to create.
The answer to that question is as complex and dynamic as the Internet Revolution itself. But if education of our youth is fundamental to the wellbeing of society, then this needs to be one of society's fundamental questions. The answer is unfolding in schools across the country (prime example: The Partnership for Change in Burlington & Winooski, VT). The answer is in asking young people like Logan what they are passionate about. It is in teachers breaking through the isolation and collaborating through Professional Learning Communities. It is in the uses of technology for authentic student learning. It is in the rethinking of assessments, the focus on project-based learning, and the importance of social-emotional learning. It's everywhere, and it's happening.
