In his seventh and most visionary book, internationally renowned educator and futurist Marc Prensky presents a compelling alternative – based on applying students' passion to real, world-improving projects – to how and what we teach our children. What education should be about, says Prensky, is improving the world and having individuals improve in the process. He argues that a routinely taught combination of math, language arts, science, and social studies ("The MESS") increasingly leaves the bulk of our students woefully unprepared for the future. Drawing on emerging world trends, Presnky 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 their 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 students from all backgrounds. Visit the book's website at
