McGraw-Hill Education, Oct 1, 2006 - Education - 278 pages

The World Has Changed—So Should the Way You Teach

This thought-provoking book argues that education has failed to take into account how much the world has changed since the information technology revolution and that education requires a totally new mindset to become relevant. The authors describe the new social practices and new literacies associated with a digital world and offer suggestions on where change should occur.
