From the Inside Flap
“My goal [for this book] is to link the many wonderful, exciting, stimulating, energizing, passion-driven brushfires of innovation I found at almost every school I visited and help fan them into a conflagration.” —From the Introduction
#EdJourney: A Roadmap to the Future of Education takes a fresh look at our nation’s schools, eschewing the negativity so often found in the world of education today. While on his solo road trip across the United States, Grant Lichtman, one of the country’s leading experts in educational innovation, discovered that there is much to be positive about in today’s K–12 schools. During Lichtman’s travels, he interviewed more than 600 teachers, administrators, students, and parents to find out what kind of innovations they’re doing right—and to discover how others can follow their example.
To help create an environment that will encourage innovation, #EdJourney puts the focus on four key questions: What new learning strategies are the top schools implementing to prepare our students for their future rather than for our past? How do teachers and administrators manage the transition to new types of teaching and learning? What are the key obstacles to shifting away from the assembly line model of education? And, most importantly, how can we all leverage the lessons of success from the most innovative schools?
With this trailblazing and practical guide, educators can make sure their schools are ready for the future. Filled with compelling examples from around the country and based on the findings from the latest education research, #EdJourney maps out how administrators and teachers can embrace the innovation process that schools and learners need right now.
From the Back Cover
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR #EdJourney
"A book of hope. Grant Lichtman's grand education journey shows the innovative spirit is still alive in American schools, private and public, urban and rural, large and small, despite the destructive reforms of standardization and high-stakes testing. A book of urgency. Lichtman's insightful reflections of conversations with hundreds of educators, combined with his sharp analyses of education's future, form an urgent call for an educational paradigm shift. A must-read for all who seek directions, strategies, and action plans to have a better education."
—Yong Zhao, presidential chair, University of Oregon, author of Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Dragon: Why China has the Best (and Worst) Education in the World and World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students
"#EdJourney: A Roadmap to the Future of Education is, just as the title implies, a kind of educational picaresque, where Grant Lichtman, tilting at the windmills of conventional thinking and resistant schools, strikes hard and true along his journey across America to discover schools where teachers are the farmers in an ecosystem where students thrive and grow. Recommended reading for all educators and citizens who think America’s schools must meet the needs of kids and the 21st century, learning that when we do the former, we'll achieve the latter."
—Pat Bassett, past president of the National Association of Independent Schools
"Grant Lichtman discovered in his travels that brushfires of transformational education are burning brightly in a diverse array of American schools. It's a must-read book for anyone interested in helping shift the education world out of the Industrial Age mindset."
—David Kelley, cofounder of the Stanford d.School and of design firm IDEO; coauthor of Creative Confidence
"We should all be grateful to Grant Lichtman not only for taking his 'EdJourney' across America, but for capturing the essence of the transformation underway in American education. It turns out his journey and his hopeful reflections provide an incredibly helpful roadmap for all of us who are committed to change education so that our students are truly prepared for their 21st century lives."
—Ken Kay, founder of EdLeader21
"A truly stunning achievement, an eye-opening pleasure that will set this whole debate of effective education on its ear."
—John Hunter, veteran teacher, inventor of The World Peace Game and author of World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements
