Reviews

"A compelling case for reframing methods of teaching and learning." --Kirkus Reviews "Jim Gee is one of the great thinkers of our time. His book, The Anti-Education Era, explains how we can all become smarter. His description of synchronized intelligence and why affinity spaces make for powerful learning should radically change how we think about education." --Allan Collins, author of Rethinking Education in the Age of Technology "Jim Gee is a great thinker. The book's concept of the future of education as collective, powerful, effective groups combining multiple brains enhanced by technology around the world-- what he calls affinity spaces, and capital M 'Minds'-- is both original and brilliant." --Marc Prensky, author of Brain Gain: Technology and the Quest for Digital Wisdom "This book is a wonderful meditation on what it means to be an educated adult in a 21st-century, why this goal is critical to our future as a species, and what technologies can and cannot do to help us achieve the goal of an educated citizenry. It is a powerful antidote to the prevailing belief that more technology, and more STEM courses will save our economy and our planet." --Tony Wagner, author of Creating Innovators and The Global Achievement Gap A compelling case for reframing methods of teaching and learning.
