Here are some reviews of the book:
“This is an inspirational book about the potential of learning. I have found no more powerful critique of the backward view of current education policy, combined with an exciting look into what is possible and what organisations at the forefront of education are doing. Be inspired, I certainly was.”
“In a time where many of those involved education in the UK are distracted by the 'my way is better than your way' debates, OPEN reminds us of the learners that should be at the heart of any education approach but that are too often forgotten. The book exemplifies not just the way people learn when allowed the space, choice and freedom to do so but also places that in the context of what 21st century learners will need in this changing world. This is a must-read for anyone in education.”
“This is a great book. It is very well written - easy to read, funny and hard to put down. As an academic who works in education I found its fundamental argument about how people learn entirely convincing. New technologies have the potential to improve the way we teach drastically. But they can only do this if those of us who teach think afresh about what it is we are trying to do and how we should do it.”
“It spoke to my radical soul - as a teacher, leader, parent and citizen. I loved its humour, its humanity and above all the way it challenged my thinking in a practical, motivational way. It made me want to do stuff - changing the world stuff. I will not stop banging on about this book to my students, friends, colleagues and managers.”
