Then What? is funny, wise and powerful. It is a story - everyone's story - about trying to make sense of a digitally overdone world that our kids call normal. And it is a story about how schools must change if they are going to help us take back the future...today. Part sci-fi, part social commentary, and a lot of roller coaster fun, Then What? is rated NT for "non-technical." Join computer savant William Tell as he tries to find a path with a heart among the glitz of the high-tech world. Led by his mentor Credo, and joined by a group of insanely wise helpmates, William discovers what it means to be human in a world filled by intelligent machines and starts a crusade to create schools that make sense for the Digital Age in which we live.
