In his latest book, internationally renowned educator and futurist Marc Prensky presents a compelling alternative to how and what we teach our children. Prensky argues that a routinely taught combination of mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies increasingly leaves the bulk of our students woefully unprepared for the future. Drawing on emerging world trends, he 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 all students from diverse backgrounds. Following the author's original ideas about Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants, this volume promises to have an important impact on the educational conversations over the coming years.
