This generation is the first for whom the freedom to express every impulse to the entire world is as easy as it used to be to open your mouth and talk to a friend. How does all that change the monotony and joy and pain and wonder and turmoil that is the average teenager’s life? What is it like?

"Take the rules of Instagram. Wyatt just learned them today in the honors English class she teaches. "I was ribbing on this one boy a little bit. He was on Instagram and I asked him, ‘What the heck is Instagram?’ He said, ‘I was just liking pictures. I can’t be a ghost.’ I said, ‘What do you mean, a ghost?’""

« The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects. »
