Judy Breck is onto something - something big. If you are interested in the future of knowledge and learning, her big idea will be useful to you. -- Howard Rheingold, author of Smart Mobs
For millennia access to much of the world's knowledge has been limited to the rich and powerful. The Internet creates the opportunity to reduce inequalities, if the information on the Internet is open and free. Judy Breck provides a comprehensive and compelling introduction to a rapidly growing worldwide movement to make this opportunity a reality. -- Marshall (Mike) Smith, education program director, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, former Under Secretary US Department of Education, former
This collection of ideas urges educators and planners to throw out some preconceptions-uncomfortable as that might be-and embrace the changes and the startling potential of the Internet. * Reference and Research Book News *
The book's a great read and is certain to drop some useful seeds into your mind should you open your mind to it a little. * British Journal of Educational Technology *
Anyone planning or making policy for education will be inspired and informed by this book. Judy Breck shifts the focus both from fixing what is broken and from bogging down in technology - saying neither is necessary. Her vision of globally networked knowledge dynamically moving within the internet and individually through students' mobile computers and minds returns the adventure and joy to learning. In the world she shows us, a child in a rural village anywhere will literally learn from the same pages as the most privileged scholars on earth. -- Dr. Sam Pitroda, chairman, WorldTel Limited, UK and Chairperson National Knowledge Commission, India
