Short Title:
Abstract: In his seventh and most visionary book, internationally renowned educator and futurist Marc Prensky presents a compelling alternative-based around Applied Passion and real, world-improving projects--to how and what we teach our children. What education should be about, says Prensky, is improving the world and having individuals improve in the process. He argues that a routinely taught combination of math, language arts, science, and social studies increasingly leaves the bulk of our students woefully unprepared for the future. Drawing on emerging world trends, Prensky elaborates a comprehensive vision for K-12 education that includes new goals, new means, a new curriculum, a new kind of teaching, and a new use of technology. This is a book, ultimately, about developing young people's capacity to accomplish things that will make the world a better place, using means never before available. It offers an innovative and achievable vision for a Global Future Education that will better prepare students from all backgrounds.
