“The most challenging and insightful book I have read in all my years in education” – Gerry Cockburn, Principal, Canadian Trillium College, Shanghai, China
Redefining Smart takes readers on the ultimate journey to understanding inquiry based learning and the ‘why’ behind educational transformation in the 21st century, from re-examining our assumptions about intelligence to studying the impact of deep collaboration and caring relationships on student learning.
The book powerfully integrates the strands of thinking, including project based learning and social emotional learning, that are rapidly coalescing to provide a roadmap of teaching methods and approaches as the new century moves forward.
The book is now being used by several large school districts to guide thinking for professional development and training. Buy the book and enroll in online PBL Global courses – and you will be ready for 21st Century learning!
What Reviewers Say About Redefining Smart:
“An urgent call for redefining educational outcomes and a compelling argument for personalization of education. Markham convincingly explains why education is much more than developing cognitive skills and proposes practical ways to cultivate what matters.”
– Yong Zhao, Director,
Institute of Global and Online Education, University of Oregon
“This book will resonate with teachers. Joyful learning that engages both heart and brain is not in opposition to today’s rigorous standards. As Markham explains, students will not be prepared to tackle the challenges ahead unless they learn to think, collaborate, communicate, and feel. This book outlines practical steps to create the culture of inquiry that all children deserve.”
