Today’s most successful school leaders are truly “learning engineers”: creative thinkers who redefine their problems and design new ways to better serve kids’ success. Technology has a critical role, but it is the creative reinvention of schools, systems, and classrooms that has to come first. In this powerful book, bestselling author and education policy expert Rick Hess and chief learning officer Bror Saxberg show you how to become your school’s learning engineer. Using cutting-edge research about learning science as a framework, you’ll: identify specific learning problems that need solving; devise smarter ways to address them; and implement technology-enabled, not technology-driven, solutions.
