Synopsis

We live in a creative, dynamic knowledge society. How do we teach young people to work in it and prosper from it? How do we protect them against its frantic pace and runaway effects? In this title, Andy Hargreaves examines what is meant by the knowledge society, why it's important and what it means for teachers today. Knowledge societies need schools to become creative and caring learning communities, and this book shows inspiring examples of such schools. Yet the quest to create true knowledge society schools has been stalled by years of standardization. The benefits of creative learning communities are most often offered to teachers of the affluent. Prescribed programs of teaching and learning are inflicted on the rest. This book shows how to break through this impasse and create the knowledge society schools for all that we really need. Hargreaves' commentary on the state of teaching today is theoretically original and strategically powerful. Rich in teachers' voices and rigorous research, it is useful reading for teachers and teacher educators, policy makers, leaders and researchers alike.
