Allan Collins, professor emeritus of learning sciences at Northwestern University, has studied teaching and learning for over 30 years and has written extensively on related topics. He is the coauthor with Richard Halverson of Rethinking Education in the Age of Technology: The Digital Revolution and Schooling in America.
"Collins has provided educators with a succinct, 120-page blueprint for how American schools can better prepare students for the complex world they inhabit today as well as the one they will inherit tomorrow. Collins' themes and specific suggestions are relevant for educators, administrators, and those crafting a new vision of schooling by challenging the long-standing assumptions about what students should learn."--Teachers College Record
