I’d like to announce the official launch of my new eBook, Brutal Truths for Schools. For those who have seen me present, this eBook is part one of my “It’s broken, so Let’s Fix it” theme. I thought I’d put all the “bad news” (it’s broken) into one work. This way, it’s a starting point for those who haven’t confronted the reality that, as the sub-title states, “Education Fails Students in our Digital Age.”
My thinking is that the main readers will come from three audiences. First, anyone new to the profession or in a teacher ed course currently. These folks need to know that the schools of their near future do not need people who will prop-up a broken model, but who will grow into the next era of education where schools promote intrinsic motivation and personal learning. The second audience is educational leaders who are already advocating and realizing the power of digital learning, not assembly line schooling. You folks might find something useful in my 10 Truths. Lastly, those teachers – whatever their age or years in teaching – who refuse to confront reality and grow their practice. For these folks, the Truths are indeed brutal.
