Editorial Reviews

Review

" The More We Know is both a page turner and a crucial cautionary tale for reformers in the digital world. Any and all would-be reformers be warned: read this book. For all the rest, the book is a delicious insider's tale."--James Paul Gee, Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies, Arizona State Universit



"This intriguing case study provides important insights into how academic and business partnerships function in order to improve education through new media. Highly recommended for entrepreneurs launching startups based on learning technologies."--Chris Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard University



"For new educational technologies to be both innovative and successful, they must challenge deeply-entrenched classroom traditions while also meeting the needs of students and teachers. The More We Know illustrates how difficult it is to accomplish both--and provides lessons for those who (I hope) will continue to try."--Mitchel Resnick, LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research, MIT Media Lab

Format: Hardcover
This book covers the trials and tribulations of MIT's "The Education Arcade" and NBC News as they attempt to create the Next Big Thing in education and learning. From the original student-centered approach with learning games, video from NBC archives for use in student compositions, and social networked projects to its eventual teacher's resource of historic videos (NBC Learn), the story is one of vision stymied by the corporate need for profit and the strong negative reaction of the education establishment.

Lest anyone think of the authors as teacher-haters, they fully acknowledge that young and inexperienced learners need the guidance and coaching of a teacher. Teaching will never be out of style, but teaching has to change.

I sincerely believe the authors have documented the first real draft of education in the 21st century. Without teacher buy in and corporate stamina, the effort remained too small and compromises too many to result in the vision. However, it WAS a first draft; one of many to come. I continue to lament the resistance of the educational establishment. There is so much to do.

Spend some time on NBC News new redesigned web site and then tell me what they've learned. 99% of every comment I've read on the Internet over the last few weeks, consider it an Epic Failure.
