Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In this, the era of the 'knowledge society', more is expected of education than ever before, yet disappointment in education seems pervasive. New Learning analyses the state of education today and presents an exciting vision of what schools could be like. It addresses the fundamental questions: what kinds of workers, citizens and individuals will our future need, and how can schools refashion themselves and become more relevant? The focus is on learners and their learning - the extraordinary diversity of their backgrounds and interests, and the dynamics of educational environments which can engage all to fully maximise the effectiveness of learning. This book by internationally renowned experts is an imaginative, future-oriented exploration of contemporary education. The supplementary web site NewLearningOnline.com includes extracts from books and interviews, case studies, keyword definitions and additional learning material.
