"An inspiration for innovative educators everywhere providing the big ideas and insights that transform the way we think about, discuss, and support student learning."

Lisa Nielsen, Author,The Innovative Educator Blog

Innovation Specialist, NYC Dept of Education

Learning on the Blog is the single best place to start understanding how to take advantage of the power of social media, and the changes in teaching and learning that digital media have made possible. A great way to start cultivating your personal learning network is to read Will Richardson’s book, follow his blog, and follow him on Twitter.”

Howard Rheingold, Lecturer

Stanford University, CA

“… shows the potential when we collaborate to share ideas and best practices for the future.”

George Lucas

"Perusing this succinct, reader-friendly book feels like being invited into Will Richardson's restaurant for some fine dining and animated conversation. One of my favorite dishes: teachers at the center of their own learning networks."

Milton Chen, Senior Fellow

The George Lucas Educational Foundation

Students are already familiar with the Blog format and the idea of adapting it to the classroom is a great way to create a comfortable learning environment. It will also allow me to have students comment on each other's posts in a way that might be more detailed than on a Discussion Board. Great resource.

About This Title

Education reform: We don’t need better, we need different

Today’s students are immersed in the digital age, but can our educational system keep up? Best-selling author Will Richardson's comprehensive collection of posts from his acclaimed blog, weblogg-ed.com, outlines the educational reform we must achieve to stay ahead of the curve. The book’s entries present a multifaceted vision of the 21st-century classroom and describe how a social media-changed world has created new opportunities for:

  • Project-based learning
  • Student-created media that develops critical thinking
  • Extending learning beyond the classroom and school hours
  • Cooperative and collaborative learning
  • Student empowerment and career readiness

The necessary shift will not magically happen, but experts agree that it must happen now. This compilation will inspire educators and parents to engage in the technology their children already embrace, and to take an active role in transforming education to meet the challenges of the digital revolution.
