By Cathy N. Davidson

A electronic innovator indicates how we will be able to thrive within the new technological age.

When Cathy Davidson and Duke collage gave loose iPods to the freshman category in 2003, critics stated they have been losing their cash. but whilst scholars in virtually each self-discipline invented educational makes use of for his or her track avid gamers, all of sudden the assumption may be noticeable in a brand new light-as an cutting edge strategy to flip studying on its head.

This radical scan is on the center of Davidson's inspiring new publication. utilizing state-of-the-art learn at the mind, she exhibits how "attention blindness" has produced one among our society's maximum demanding situations: whereas we've all said the good adjustments of the electronic age, such a lot folks nonetheless toil in colleges and offices designed for the final century. Davidson introduces us to visionaries whose groundbreaking ideas-from colleges with curriculums outfitted round games to businesses that educate staff utilizing digital environments-will open the doorways to new methods of operating and studying. a full of life hybrid of Thomas Friedman and Norman Doidge, Now you notice it's a refreshingly positive argument for a daring embody of our attached, collaborative destiny.
