In our highly connected world, educators must re-examine
how well school practices meet modern learners’ needs. In The End of School as We Know It, author Bruce Dixon challenges F–12
school administrators and leaders to let go of their assumptions about
traditional schooling’s effectiveness and explore emerging, digitally rich
methods. To better engage modern learners, educators need to hone new
strategies before time runs out.
- explore modern learner examples
- discover what deeper learning
means in a digitally rich curriculum
- evaluate the limitations of
research on improving traditional schooling rather than discovering alternative
- study the elements necessary to
build a change platform that can cultivate a modern learning environment
- consider alternative and
emerging models of school that emphasise what modern learners need to know.
