Publisher's Summary

The book that's changing the future of education.
Studies in neuroscience reveal that the way we learn doesn't always match up with the way we are taught. To stay competitive - academically, economically, and technologically - we need to apply the proven principles of disruptive innovation to our educational system. Disrupting Class will show you how to:


Help more students succeed through customized learning
Meet the demand for new technology, especially computers, in student-centric classrooms
Use disruptive innovation to circumvent roadblocks that have stood in the way of reform
Compete in the global classroom - and help students get ahead in the global market

Filled with fresh and surprising ideas, outside-the-box strategies, and straight-A success stories, Disrupting Class will make you rethink your understanding of intelligence, reevaluate your current school program, and reinvigorate your commitment to learning. The future is now. Class is in session.
