Description

A new generation of highly wired and interconnected kids are crafting - even demanding - a new and different narrative around learning, creating a movement that challenges the fundamental premises of what we call “school." In this new story, real learning happens anytime, anywhere, with anyone we like, not just with a teacher and some age-grouped peers in a classroom from September to June. More importantly, it happens around the things that we learners choose to learn, not what someone else tells us to learn. How can schools adjust? Or students? Or parents? In this provocative read, respected education writer Will Richardson offers a bold plan for rethinking how we teach our kids, and the consequences if we don't.
