Overview

An educational innovator who worked at Sesame Workshop and The George Lucas Educational Foundation offers a new vision for learning

As a result of constant innovation, learning is no longer limited by traditional confines and we're moving beyond students tied to their chairs, desks, and textbooks-and teachers locked away in classrooms. In Education Nation author Milton Chen draws from extensive experience in media-from his work on Sesame Street in its nascent years to his role as executive director of the George Lucas Educational Foundation-to support a vision for a new world of learning.

This book, in six chapters, explores the "edges" in education—the places where K-12 learning has already seen revolutionary changes through innovative reform and the use of technology.

  • Examines ways in which learning can be revolutionized through innovative reform and the use of technology
  • Explores the ever-expanding world of technology for breakthroughs in teaching and learning
  • Includes many wonderful resources to support innovation in schools across the nation

This important book offers a clear vision for tomorrow's classrooms that will enhance learning opportunities for all children.
