Video Break: A Differently Wired Generation?

Liana's post this morning about the NY Times article on how kids today may be "hard-wired for learning differently" made me think of this video clip I came across recently (maybe you've seen it) of a kid completing not one but two Rubik's Cubes while playing Guitar Hero and, of course, hitting all the notes. There's got to be some message in this for educators, right? I guess the question would be: Are schools leveraging or building on this kind of aptitude? Can they? Should they? Obviously this kid is a special case, but I suspect he's also representative in a way.
