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,, 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.
