Look Inside the Book

Anytime, Anywhere synthesizes existing research and practices in the emerging field of student-centered learning, and includes profiles of schools that have embraced this approach.

Praise

This book highlights an important truth: for students to grasp and retain more complex content and concepts, educators need to ensure their students have a much greater stake in their own learning. Just getting kids to comply with adult wishes is not going to be enough anymore. The contributors to this volume represent a wide range of expertise, from the the conceptual to the practical, from research to reality. Collectively, they outline the path to new and revolutionary educational models. The book is a must-read for every educator and anyone else interested in getting all students to higher levels of learning. — David T. Conley, professor, University of Oregon, and CEO, Educational Policy Improvement Center

Why do some schools and learning models create success for all students— including low-income students and students at risk? This important book offers case studies of places where students are engaged, known, and valued, and impelled to take ownership of their learning and persevere toward success. It offers theory, research, and practical strategies to help educators understand and implement student-centered learning. — Ron Berger, chief program officer, Expeditionary Learning
