Freedom to Learn (Solutions) - how traditional school structures strip students of their control over the learning process (Solutions for Modern Learning)
The 21st century has seen vast advances in technology which can connect students and teachers to more information, knowledge, and experts than ever before. Schools play an important role in equipping students for society, despite the massive changes taking place in learning due to technology.

Why School?: How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere (Kindle Single)
Why School?: How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere (Kindle Single)
Traditional educators, classrooms, and brick-and-mortar schools are no longer necessary to access information. Instead, things like blogs and wikis, as well as remote collaborations and an emphasis on 'critical thinking' skills are the coins of the realm in this new kingdom. Yet the national dialogue on education reform focuses on using technology to update the traditional education model, failing to reassess the fundamental design on which it is built.In 'Why School?,' educator, author, parent and blogger Will Richardson challenges traditional thinking about education — questioning whether it still holds value in its current form. How can schools adjust to this new age? Or students? Or parents? In this provocative read, Richardson provides an in-depth look at how connected educators are beginning to change their classroom practice. Ultimately, 'Why School?' serves as a starting point for the important conversations around real school reforms that must ensue, offering a bold plan for rethinking how we teach our kids, and the consequences if we don't.
