Brave New Schools is a vision of schooling for the twenty-first century as well as a guide for parents and teachers. Brave New Schools describes a world of students, teachers, and parents globally connected by the Internet, thereby making it possible for them to communicate across geographical and cultural barriers once thought impassable. In one of the book's many astonishing case studies, a high school student on Long Island translates an Internet message from a young man in a Croatian refugee camp describing prisoner abuse, sends the translation around the world, and sets off a wave of humanitarian aid. Brave New Schools also contains an invaluable guide to the Internet for parents and teachers, which includes a listing of K-12 networking resources, lists of available published materials, and descriptions of successful networking activities. Stunning in its implications for the future of learning guided by technology, Brave New Schools offers hopeful solutions to the problems of cultural difference and the future of our children.
