Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the most important book about high schools for school facilities planners since Breaking Ranks: Changing an American Institution. The authors have made a strong case for change and defined a new process of designing schools. No other source allows an 'apples to apples' comparison of various models." (David E. Anstrand, Principal, Education Environment Planning Consultants 2008-06-16)

"Teaching the Digital Generation might well be the contemporary manual for effective education reform. In a world where the future is now, schools are falling behind. It is a lag we can no longer afford." (Sean M. Nosek, Principal 2008-06-19)

"The authors make a strong case for dismantling the traditional industrial model in favor of smaller learning communities. This would make a great book to discuss at a board retreat or for beginning the discussion on the question, 'What kind of education do we want for our kids?'" (Jeff N. Turner, Superintendent 2008-07-08)

An architect, Frank S. Kelly is senior vice president and director of planning/programming for the SHW Group, an architectural, planning, and engineering firm focused on architecture for education. SHW’s practice extends across much of the country, with offices in Texas, Michigan, and Virginia.

Kelly taught design in the School of Architecture at the University of Tennessee and has worked with architectural classes at both Texas A&M and Rice University. With particular interest in the relationship between instruction and facilities, much of his architectural experience has focused on the planning, programming, and design of K-12 schools. He frequently lectures at school conferences related to instruction and has written a number of articles for education journals. His projects have been recognized by design awards from the architectural profession and educational organizations. In 1984, he was elected to the American Institute of Architect’s College of Fellows for his work in design.



Ted McCain is coordinator of instructional technology for Maple Ridge Secondary School in Vancouver, BC. He also has taught computer networking, graphic design, and desktop publishing for Okanagan College, Kelowna, BC. He is the author of six books on the future, effective teaching, educational technology, and graphic design. In 1997, McCain received the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence for his work in developing a real-world technology curriculum that prepares students for employment in technology directly out of high school. For the past twenty years, McCain has done consulting work for businesses and school districts on effective teaching for the digital generation and the implementation of instructional technology. His clients have included Apple Computer, Microsoft, Aldus, and Toyota, as well as many school districts and educational associations in both the United States and Canada. He is passionate in his belief that schools must change so that they can effectively prepare students for the rest of their lives.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a well-researched, informed opinion on the direction education needs to be going. It's so forward thinking I was surprised by the 2008 publication date. Excellent book, and an excellent vision.
