LT - Sir Ken Robinson

“Given how quickly and profoundly the world is changing, there are few more urgent challenges than the transformation of our schools and education systems. Some people are still unconvinced of the need for this transformation: others are unsure how to make it happen. Learning Transformed is addressed to all of them and to every other educator, administrator and policy maker with a serious concern for the future of our children and our communities. It draws on the best research about the need for change and on the strategies that work and those that don’t. More than that, it’s seasoned throughout with deep, real world experience of teaching and learning, policy and practice in innovative schools and pioneering districts across the nation. Learning Transformed is both a compelling manifesto for the schools our children need now and an inspirational blueprint for how to bring them about.”

“Imagine schools and classrooms designed to develop students who are energized by learning, who are preparing for life in the world they inhabit, and who are taught by forward-thinking teachers supported in their own professional growth trajectories. In this design, equity is a non-negotiable, environments release creative energies, and communities are no longer outside the school. Learning Transformed points the way to actualizing our best understanding of teaching and learning as the central element in the critical work of school reform.”
