Future wise. Educating our children for a changing world
Author: David Perkins, IJohn Wiley & Sons Inc 2014 Summary: What is worth learning? There is no right answer to this question, but visualising what might be of value within the content we teach in schools is undoubtedly a fundamental act of educational imagination.
