About the Author:

Alan November began his education career as a science and math teacher and a residential dorm counselor on an island reform school in Boston Harbor. November went on as a teacher and administrator in the Boston Public Schools, Lexington and Wellesley (Massachusetts) Public Schools, and the Glenbrook High Schools in Illinois. He has also taught in the graduate schools of education at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and Seton Hall in New Jersey. He was the cofounder of the Institute for Education Leadership and Technology at Stanford University. He has presented in all 50 states, every province of Canada, across Europe, Asia, Central America, and South Africa. He is proudest of being named one of the first Christa McAuliffe Educators in the United States. November is the author of the best-selling book Empowering Students With Technology. Each July, he leads the international Building Learning Communities summer conference near Boston.

Review:

There is nothing like a great question to send you on a rich and meaningful quest for learning. A great question forces us to challenge our most taken-for-granted beliefs and threatens to uproot our most deeply rooted habits. Who owns the learning? is one of those great questions. When I first allowed myself to ask the question and really sit with it for a while, I soon found myself questioning everything in my teaching practice. Fortunately, November offers inspiring stories along with practical advice to help us on the journey forward, while leaving enough space to make each of our journeys our very own. --Michael Wesch, associate professor of cultural anthropology, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas

Fantastic! Captivating from the start, this book will change the way one thinks about the process of learning. The many examples help provide explicit guidance on how to move from a teacher-centered to a learner-centered approach. --Eric Mazur, area dean of applied physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts

If you think you know what problem-based learning is, or if you've ever wondered what formative assessment actually looks like in a digital world, Who Owns the Learning? is your first port of call: the first step in providing real meaning to the learning of your students." -- Ewan McIntosh, founder and CEO, NoTosh (UK) Learning | Digital | Design Thinking, Edinburgh, Unit

"When Alan November first shared his concept of the Digital Learning Farm, educators sat up and paid close attention. As usual, he was on to something fresh, thought-provoking, and of imminent value. Based on years of experience throughout the world, November describes in detail what the contemporary learner can look like in action, in any school setting. For the forward-thinking teacher, school leader, professional developer, and curriculum writer, Who Owns the Learning? is a must. --Heidi Hayes Jacobs, author and director of the Curriculum 21 Project, Rye, New York
