With a foreword by Professor Stephen Ball
What can we do with students who don't succeed in the typical classroom, and what are the alternatives to full-time schooling?
With contributions from leading academics from Canada, America, the UK, The Netherlands and Australia, this internationally-minded book helps the reader to reflect on the ways young people are taught, and presents possible alternative approaches. Global social and economic changes and technological developments are driving the need for change within education, so that we can better cater for a diversity of young people. This book offers a forward-looking overview of where we are now, and where we might want to go in the future.
It includes chapters on:
- educational innovations;
- learning identities;
- learning spaces;
- e-learning and remote students;
- alternatives in education.
This book will open your mind to the changing experience of schooling, and highlights new and different ways to help those whose needs simply don't fit into the usual mould.
Suitable for all those on all undergraduate and postgraduate Education courses, and for those on Education Studies and Childhood and Youth courses, this book is an engaging, thought-provoking read.
