Robinson outlines an approach to teaching that posits that true, transformative teaching in the modern age should include the three C's of "connect, collaborate, and cultivate." This is not a technical manual about software tools, but a treatise on the power of having students connect with global experts and other students through the 21st-century tools available in the modern classroom.
The book is a quick read; as accessible as it is helpful. It is my hope that teacher training programs and homeschooling organizations will start adding this book to their reading lists sooner than later. Modern education will be the better for it.
