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
