The future of schooling looks to be a multibillion dollar business where technology is used to individualize education for every student.  Through all this personalized learning we are creating echo chambers of our own thoughts and creating further inequity. Renowned education expert and author ofWhat Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and LiteracyJames Paul Gee argues all this does not auger well for individuals or societies facing global challenges.  Gee shows that the solution—and perhaps even our survival—lies in what he calls synchronized intelligence, a way of organizing people and their digital tools to solve problems, produce knowledge, and create innovation in a world where more people count and contribute.  For educators and parents of young people today, this book shows the benefits of digital learning and how it can engage children in meaningful learning that will bridge inequality.

James Paul Gee is Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies at Arizona State University. He is the author of Social Linguistics and Literacies, a foundational work in the field of New Literacy Studies, and Why Video Games Are Good For Your Soul.
