Publisher Description:
"What Next? offers a detailed study of the School of the Future's first three years (2006-2009) revealing what the School of the Future can teach us about high school redesign, public-private partnerships, and the use of technology in school reform.

When the school district of Philadelphia teamed up with the Microsoft Corporation in 2006 to redesign the American high school, the result was the School of the Future, hailed by National Public Radio as "the next big thing," by Education Week as "a new high-tech school [that is] strutting its stuff," and by NBC News as "next-generation education."

While technology was a crucial element at the School of the Future, the redesign sought fundamentally to rethink the models for teaching and learning. Their trademark framework for decision making, the "6Is"--introspection, investigation, inclusion, innovation, implementation, and, again, introspection--is now being used by organizations in more than fifteen countries.

The book's contributors--researchers, educators, and practitioners--offer countless insights into "when and how technology-based school redesign leads to improved teaching and learning, when it does not, and what this means in terms of dramatically improving the American high school."

What Next? is a volume in the new Educational Innovations series."
