How to Prepare Students for the Information Age and Global Marketplace examines how the structure of schools might be changed so that students in their formative years are able to learn in a manner that allows them to be more creative. The modern world is shrinking as technology and connectivity create new ways to live, communicate, and do business. Education and learning must follow suit. In this regard, the book focuses on such key issues as the process of actually learning how to learn; the sort of changing relationship between teacher and student which needs to occur if students are to learn more creatively; the development of a new set of skills, particularly that of students developing their own learning progressions in approaching various subject matter; and a greater connection between school and the world of adult expertise. The world is changing; so to must the way we educate our students.

Lyn Lesch guides us through important perspectives and examples to remind us that if we are to cultivate innovative, enterprising citizens for the future, we must foster opportunities for them to be creative in their current educational contexts. -- Greta Nagel, author of The Tao of Teaching
In an era when educators at all levels are decrying the lack of critical and creative thinking among their students, Lyn's critique of current educational approaches and their impact on the learning and educational development of students is a thought provoking and much needed work. -- Jim Wasner, associate professor and department head, Clinical Psychology Programs, Argosy University, Chicago
I believe that as time goes on, Lyn's views on education, though not now on many people's radar screens, will become increasingly significant. He sees so clearly into the minds of young people that I often have to chuckle at how I could have missed such simple truths. -- Bill Pollack, former parent at The Children's School
Lesch concentrates on intellectual development and rigorous academics to enhance the education of the individual. His focus on critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and "the information age and global marketplace" are part of his mission to prepare students to fit into a world which values rapid progress for individual achievers. -- . * Academia, May 2008 *
Much of the death of our national imagination can be traced to years of routine classroom procedures. Think of this book as a shovel to help dig us out of the grave for creativity classrooms have become. -- John Taylor Gatto, author, The Underground History of American Education
