Synopsis

Reboot student learning the right way!



Today's most successful school leaders are truly "learning engineers": creative thinkers who redefine their problems and design new ways to better serve kids' success. Technology has a critical role, but it's the creative reinvention of schools, systems, and classrooms that has to come first.



In this powerful book, best-selling author and education policy expert Rick Hess and chief learning officer Bror Saxberg show you how to become your school's learning engineer. Using cutting-edge research about learning science as a framework, you'll:

Identify specific learning problems that need solvingDevise smarter ways to address themImplement technology-enabled, not technology-driven, solutions
