"Synopsis" by , Selected as a Top Education Book of 2010 by American School Board Journal

Education Nation offers a dynamic vision for a new world of learning. This groundbreaking book draws on author Milton Chen's extensive experience in media—from his work at Sesame Workshop and in public television to his current role as executive director emeritus of The George Lucas Educational Foundation. Throughout the book, Chen clearly shows how to "put the edge into education" and revolutionize learning through innovative classroom practices and uses of technology.

Praise for Education Nation

"I strongly believe that education is the single most important job of the human race. I'm very excited that Education Nation is adding to the tools we are giving educators and many others to make change in their own communities." —From the Foreword by George Lucas, founder and chairman, The George Lucas Educational Foundation

"This book provides an outstanding overview of where we stand in the history of learning technologies, what current initiatives are most promising, and what challenges and opportunities we face in the near future."—Christopher Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"How fortunate we are that Milton Chen has decided to share the lessons he has learned along the way on his incredible learning journey. As we just begin to unlock the methods of teaching our kids in a 21st Century context, this book should be embraced by every caring educator and parent who wants to do right by our kids."—Gary E. Knell, president and CEO, Sesame Workshop
