Using Mandelbrot sets instead of worksheets, academic jam sessions instead of lectures, and project-based collaborative tasks instead of textbooks are just three of this book’s suggestions for how schools can prepare students for a work world very different from today’s.
Find out how the twin forces of microprocessors and communication networks are creating a new “telematic” model of work. Learn why jobs of the future will require skills that are not being taught in the traditional school curriculum. And explore ways schools can ensure students are more adequately equipped for the future by emphasizing the “new basics” of abstraction, system thinking, experimentation, and collaboration.
