Reviews

"For those of us engaged as practitioners in the transformation of K-12 education to better serve the needs of today's students, Marc Prensky has long been an inspirational thought leader. In this latest book, Prensky offers perhaps the most compelling case and model yet articulated by anyone for project-based, real-world problem-solving as the basis for all learning by today's globally-empowered children. A must-read book for all educators and anyone who cares about education." - James Tracy, Head of School, Rocky Hill School, Rhode Island, USA

""In this time of economic and global change, now is a critical time to ask the fundamental question: What is the purpose of education? Marc Prensky answers that education should now empower youth to improve their communities and the world. His answer would unleash the energy, creativity, and compassion of students and teachers in ways we have never imagined. We need the better world Prensky envisions and we need it now."" - Milton Chen, The George Lucas Educational Foundation

""The world of education as it stands today is in shambles and our nation's children are the victims. Marc Prensky has penned an elegant manifesto that if implemented, even in part, would create a positive tectonic shift in the competency and engagement of our nation's students. A must-read for all educators and parents."" - Rob Berkley, Master Certified Coach www.visionday.com
