What counterintuitive lessons can we learn from the meteoric rise of Mindset Theory in education? Why have computers so overwhelmingly failed to become the academic panacea many expected them to be? How can the simple act of assigning grades drive student narcissism and damage teacher professionalism?

In this book, brain and behavioural research is combined with respected philosophy in order to place ten widely accepted yet rarely examined aspects of education under the microscope.
  • Teacher Expertise
  • Evidence-Based Practice
  • Grading
  • Homework
  • Mindset
  • 21st Century Skills
  • Computers
  • Rewards
  • Daily Organization
  • Function
This book aims to inspire teachers, leaders, and parents to question many commonly held beliefs and empower them to re-think the role of modern schooling.
