Publisher's Summary

Our homes, communities, and the world itself need the natural assets our children bring with them as learners, and which they often lose over time on the assembly line that pervades most of the public education system today. We see no actions as more important in school than developing, supporting, and reinforcing children's sense of agency, the value of their voices, and their potential to influence their own communities.  

In Timeless Learning, an award-winning team of leaders, Chief Technology Officer Ira Socol, Superintendent Pam Moran, and Lab Schools Principal Chad Ratliff demonstrate how you can implement innovative practices that have shown remarkable success. The authors use progressive design principles to inform pathways to disrupt traditions of education today and show you how to make real innovations that will have a timeless and meaningful impact on students, keeping alive the natural curiosity and passion for learning with which children enter school.

A worthy challenge with no quick fixes...

A worthwhile read that challenges educators to completely reconsider the way that they are serving students. A scary challenge, actually, that proposes more freedom for students to pick the projects on which they work.

A statement from a meeting about a struggling, disengaged student: "He can work on things he's interested in for HOURS." Author comment: "Duh."

I believe that that exchange is at the heart of the book, and a big, important heart it is.

There are many times in the book where the narrative switches to what seems to be excerpts from a conversation between the authors. As part of the performance, I would have appreciated some type of warning or cue that the flow of the content had temporarily been changed to a different mode. Probably would have been obvious in print or digital form...was just a bit confusing sometimes when listening to the Audible version. It always seemed to take me a few seconds to realize the switch had taken place.

This will be a book I will read again.
