The Randall Black Show: Book Giveaway

The Randall Black Show is sponsoring a book giveaway of Learning Transformed by Eric Sheninger and Thomas Murray.

Publisher ASCD says the following about the book:

"With all that we know about how students learn, the nature of the world they will face after graduation, and the education inequities that have existed for centuries, maintaining a traditional, one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning is tantamount to instructional malpractice.

International security, the success of global economies, and sustainability as a global society all depend on the success of our education system in the years to come. It's our obligation to prepare our students for their future—not our past.

Authors Eric C. Sheninger and Thomas C. Murray outline eight keys—each a piece of a puzzle for transforming the K–12 education system of teaching and learning—to intentionally design tomorrow's schools so that today's learners are prepared for success . . . and stand ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems.

The traditional model of schooling ultimately prepares students for the industrial model of the past. If we want our students to become successful citizens in a global society, we must dramatically shift to a more personal approach. Failure is not an option. We can no longer wait. Let Learning Transformed show you how you can be a part of the solution.

The authors encourage you to use the hashtag #LT8Keys to continue the discussion online."

To be eligible to win a copy of this fantastic book, simply rate the show and write a review in the pod-catcher of your choice. All reviews submitted will be placed into the pool for a drawing to win this book. The winner will be contacted and announced on Season 2, Episode 4 of the show in March.
