Summary
"'This book is a stunner. Writing in an entertaining, page turning style, Ian Gilbert engages the reader with some powerful ideas about learning and teaching...he inspires us to consider the role of the teacher not as the fount of knowledge but as someone who helps children to learn:-Sara Bubb, Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Education, London" "'This divergent-thinking book is a must read for all who want real, sustainable and effective reform for learning for this century; it should be embedded in the syllabi of colleges of education and education graduate studies worldwide'-Dr Earle Warnica, Professor of Education at the American University of Res Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates" "'In his inimitable style, laced with humour and wisdom, Ian Gilbert makes neuroscience reachable, digestible and, above all, applicable to classroom practice...he proposes a new moral purpose for education û to play a central role in the creation of a society in which you would want your own grandchildren to live. It will become compulsory reading. I couldn't put it down'-Sir John Jones, Presenter, Writer and Educational Consultant" "Why Do I Need A Teacher When I've Got Google? is just one of the challenging, controversial and thought-provoking questions Ian Gilbert poses. Questioning the unquestionable, this book will make you re-consider everything you thought you knew about teaching and learning, such as:" "-Are you simply preparing the next generation of unemployed accountants?" "-What do you do for the 'sweetcorn korn' who come out of the education system in pretty much the same state as when they went in?" "-What's the real point of school?" "-Exams-so whose bright idea was that?" "-What will your school policy be on brain-enhancing technologies?" "With his customary combination of hard-hitting truths, practical classroom ideas and an irreverent sense of humor, Ian Gilbert takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride through burning issues of the 21st century, considering everything from the challenge of the BRIC economies to the link between eugenics and the 11+." "As wide-ranging and exhaustively-researched as it is entertaining and accessible, this book is designed to challenge, inform and encourage teachers as they strive to design a 21st century learning experience that really does bring the best out of all young people. After all, the future of the world may just depend on it."--BOOK JACKET
