In spite of all the media attention and national concern about schools, this is the only book that documents real improvements in learning, confidence, and morale, proven through the author's 15 years of research and experience. Rather than business or government imposing a solution to the problems in education, this is an inside solution developed by teachers, administrators, and board members. Genck details a system of participative and results-oriented management to replace traditional authoritarian school administration and its attendant conflict with teamwork and accountability. Using the techniques detailed here, students and teachers can gain three more years of learning during eight years of school, as well as attain greater satisfaction, confidence, morale, and cost-effectiveness. These are successful solutions already implemented in a variety of urban, suburban, and rural districts, with a documented track record of improvement.
Many educators accept teaching with technology as perhaps the most important instructional strategy to impact the classroom since the introduction of the textbook. The Taxonomy for the Technology Domain suggests a new classification system that includes literacy, collaboration, decision-making, infusion, integration, and technology. As with most taxonomies, each step offers a progressively more sophisticated level of complexity by constructing increasingly multifaceted objectives addressing more complex student learning outcomes. The Taxonomy for the Technology Domain will affect all aspects of how technology in used in elementary and secondary classrooms, corporate training rooms, and higher education classrooms.
