Discover options for instruction and school design that reflect the needs of 21st-century students!

Preparing students to meet the demands of a constantly changing, technology-driven environment presents today′s educators with unique challenges. This innovative resource demonstrates how traditional, industrial-type high schools have become outdated and helps school leaders plan facilities and curriculum in ways that benefit students′ academic development and performance.

Teaching the Digital Generation examines how educators can address the learning needs of secondary students immersed in a digital world by designing and implementing new instructional models and technology infrastructure. The authors explore ten alternative high school models that address 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and digital literacy, and pose five critical considerations:

  • What should instruction and learning look like in a 21st-century school?
  • How can technology foster this kind of learning?
  • What noninstructional components are required?
  • How can time be used differently to support our vision?
  • How can new facility design turn this vision into reality?

Incorporating issues of facility design with curriculum and instructional planning, the authors offer educational leaders a new vision for schools.
