Overview

Want to make the world a better place? Education is transformative. And new computational and pedagogical technologies will make education more scalable, equitable, and effective than ever before. But where can education take us? And how will we get there?
With smooth language and incisive clarity, (S)am makes a journey through time, mind, and community to explore how education can and should change over the next century.

"In this book, (S)am has you enter his extraordinary mind. ... I believe that we can and must achieve (S)am's vision and end in mind sooner rather than later – certainly before we lose our children, our future expert-leaders ... our future." - Ronald Chi, Ed. D.

"Education: The Next Hundred Years is an invitation to an absolutely essential conversation." - Michael Littman, Ph.D.

"We need to go back to the nature of education, what we want for our children. ... Through (S)am's efforts, I hope more people can see the original intention of education, and that this book will motivate readers to consider their global impact." - Huáng Zhōngyáng, CEO of Special A Education
