A leading educational thinker argues that the American university is stuck in the past--and shows how we can revolutionize it for our era of constant change Our current system of higher education dates to the period from 1865 to 1925, when the nation's new universities created grades and departments, majors and minors, in an attempt to prepare young people for a world transformed by the telegraph and the Model T. As Cathy N. Davidson argues in The New Education, this approach to education is wholly unsuited to the era of the gig economy. From the Ivy League to community colleges, she introduces us to innovators who are remaking college for our own time by emphasizing student-centered learning that values creativity in the face of change above all. The New Education ultimately shows how we can teach students not only to survive but to thrive amid the challenges to come.

This title was first published in 2000. A series of major reforms during the 1980s and 1990s have led to the transformation of the Education System in England and Wales. The new system is now based on market principles in schooling resources. Parents now have the opportunity to state a preference over the school they would like their children to attend. This fascinating book sets out the new geographies of education, focusing on the spatial organization of the new market system. Using Geographical Information Systems (GIS), it examines patterns of competition and choice based on pupil home postcodes and relates these to the decision-making process of parents. It also makes comparisons between different LEAs and schools in urban and rural areas, analyzing the constraints created by space and geography. In considering the effectiveness and impact of this new form of provision, the book plays an important role in understanding and appreciating the impact of the education market upon social mobility and community structure.

The education system provides a great way to peer into the potential of the human mind, but it's come up short in unleashing it. Marquis R. Nave, who has taught English at the college level for 10 years, has discovered that student's minds are the center of education and that their ideas about their mental capabilities is crucial to developing a new education. Students who don't believe in the creative power of their minds end up being trained to do work. Educators and educational institutions must help them activate their mental potential so they can create solutions for themselves and the world. In a series of essays, Nave examines the shortcomings of the education system, challenging the way we perceive and think about knowledge, education, and our own awareness. A second section helps students write effective, college-level essays. Whether you're a student, an educator, or a supporter of educational reform, "A New Education for New Minds" will spark ideas that have long lingered in your own mind.

American schools are declining while they are being coerced by failing national standards to improve. Community schools offer wide ranging support to the educational process, encouraging learning from infancy on, while brain based support helps each student maximize his or her potential, and when all tests are self tests and documenting ones education becomes the goal of education, every student can thrive and succeed. This book calls for a new kind of education that honors each student, locates the student in his or her environment, fosters natural growth and advocates for brain wise self understanding that can serve a lifetime of continuing education.

This is the standard design guide on schools architecture, providing vital information on school architecture. Mark Dudek views school building design as a particularly specialised field encompassing ever changing educational theories, the subtle spatial and psychological requirements of growing children and practical issues that are unique to these types of building. He explores the functional requirements of individual spaces, such as classrooms, and shows how their incorporation within a single institution area are a defining characteristic of the effective educational environment. Acoustics, impact damage, the functional differentiation of spaces such as classrooms, music rooms, craft activities and gymnasium, within a single institution are all dealt with. More esoteric factors such as the effects on behaviour of colour, light, surface texture and imagery are considered in addition to the more practical aspects of designing for comfort and health. Chapter 4 comprises 20 case studies which address those issues important in the creation of modern school settings. They are state of the art examples from all parts of the world. These examples include: Pokstown Down Primary, Bournemouth; Haute Vallee School, Jersey; Heinz-Galinski School, Berlin; Anne Frank School, Papendract, Netherlands; Seabird Island School, British Columbia and The Little Village Academy, Chicago.
