About the Author

Roy Andersen has been devoutly committed to improving education for over 30 years. He has experience of numerous and diverse work situations, and has travelled to over 40 countries and lived in 4. He is deeply interested in how children learn, and equally concerned with the striking changes of this century, which he believes will redesign not only our thoughts upon people and work, but also our social patterns. Both of which, he believes, are totally ignored by educational planners in their preparation of the future citizen. In general terms, he is interested in the stabilization mechanics of a civilization: The role of past-religion and current-media. The geographical, cultural, economic, military and social forces that give each people their identity. How our identity has been shaped by past technologies and how it may be shaped by futuristic ones.
At school, Roy did very badly and completely failed all his final examinations. He left school at 17, with no qualifications. However, 3 years later, he went back into education and this time passed the same examinations, but all now with distinction. He went on to marine college and was recognized as the top student, qualifying with near 100% passes in all his examinations. For many years, these differences in his ability puzzled him. Yet, it was only in moving to Denmark that a chance arose for him set aside all other considerations and in reflecting upon his own experiences, try to understand how children learn and how they could be better taught.
To this end, he embarked upon academic studies in genetics, neuro-psychology, bio-chemistry, social anthropology, social and cultural behavioral skills, intellectual, mental, nervous and muscular disorders, principles of learning, the management and teaching of education, the planning and employment of human resource, political science and molecular technology. In the course of which, he studied under Professor Reuven Feuerstein, at his world famous academy for teaching and learning principles in Israel and qualified as a specialist in this methodology. The culmination of these efforts, spanning over 20 years, are represented in the five books he has written about how children learn and how education works.
Roy has been a teacher for over 30 years in Europe and Japan. In the later case, he taught widely from infants to scientists, as well as working as a lecturer in the renowned Ibaraki Medical University for 8 years. Since 1995, he has lectured widely on his theories and findings in Denmark, Sweden, England, Russia, Israel, Italy, Hungary and Japan. He is a qualified teacher in the Feuerstein Cognitive Training System and to the blind. He is a specialist in dyslexia and teacher to children and adults with learning problems. He lectures and has written articles on: Pre-natal Development, Infant and Child Learning, Educational Systems and Procedures, The Importance of Feedback in Learning, The Child, The Teacher and Their Systems, Human Resource in Society and The Effect of Technology on Social and Educational Polices. In 1998, his first book "Can Children Learn Better?" was published by Ungtryk in Denmark. "The Illusion of Education", "The Hidden Secrets of Intelligence", "The Brain Environment Complex' and "Preparing Education to Serve a New World: The Global Citizen" represents nearly half a century of a personal struggle to understand the purpose of the citizen in the society in which they live.
