Overview

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.
