How Education Fails Students in the Digital Age

Although the mass production model for schooling served education reasonably well through much of the 20th Century, digital technologies make such “assembly line schools” a poor substitute for real learning.  Understanding this truth is the first step toward inventing “the next era of education.”  

Experience has taught me that unless people understand this truth, real change is neither likely, nor systemic.  And this is the point: of course, some educators, schools, clusters and even school-university partnerships may be promoting the kind of vital personal learning that the next era affords, but these are rare and occur in pockets, whereas our world is filled with out-dated Assembly Line Schools.  Our society, our children, require and deserve better.  

This eBook is designed to support three main readers: new teachers, educational leaders and teachers who resist updating their practice to suit the 21st Century.

Brutal Truths for Schools

This is a critical review from an insightful educational thinker who has worked hard to explode myths and untruths about schools and about learners and their needs. Tom confronts us here with unsettling ideas that demand action just as his powerful seminars and talks have done. A must read for educators.
