Edutopia:
Success stories for learning in the digital age

Sara Armstrong - editor

Abstract:

Innovative classrooms, involved communities, and skillful educators encourage successful teaching and learning. In Edutopia: Success Stories for Learning in the Digital Age, readers will find forty examples of effective classrooms and programs from across the country. Stories explore topics such as project-based learning, emotional intelligence, teacher preparation, leadership development, business and community partnerships, and parental involvement.

In many of the classrooms, thoughtful use of technology tools has contributed to the learning experience. Technology for its own sake is never the issue, while providing students with 21st century tools is key.

The accompanying CD-ROM features ten short documentaries of some of these classrooms, as well an excerpt of a conversation between George Lucas and Linda Darling-Hammond on teachers and teaching.
