How to Prepare Students for the Information Age and Global Marketplace: Creative Learning in Action
Lesch, Lyn
Rowman & Littlefield Education
This book examines how the structure of schools might be changed so that students in their formative years are able to learn in a manner that allows them to be more creative. The modern world is shrinking as technology and connectivity create new ways to live, communicate, and do business. Education and learning must follow suit. The author focuses on issues such as the process of learning how to learn; the sort of changing relationship between teacher and student which needs to occur if students are to learn more creatively; the development of a new set of skills, particularly that of students developing their own learning progressions in approaching various subject matter; and a greater connection between school and the world of adult expertise. Thirteen chapters include: (1) Introduction; (2) Learning in the Information Age; (3) A New Paradigm; (4) Learning How to Learn; (5) Information, Knowledge, and Learning; (6) Changes in the Modern Classroom; (7) Paths of Learning; (8) Teacher and Student; (9) New Skills for the Information Age; (10) A Different Accountability; (11) Seamless Education; (12) The Role of Parents; and (13) The Future of Schooling.
