About Book


...a manifesto for the progressive-education movement, using research results from cognitive science to reinforce that philosophy and arguing that the availability of computers makes progressive education more practical than it had been previously....an extremely enthusiastic look into a future dominated by computer technology...
Minds and Machines

...this book is most helpful in shaking up some assumptions about education.
J. Educational Computing Research

Although this book focuses on public school education (what needs to be done and how to do it), it serves as a provocative wake-up call for higher education.
Educational Technology Review

The software described in Engines for Education is intriguing because the program targets domains that are information-rich and ill-defined, such as biology, history, and human social interaction....readers can learn how computer scientists are attempting to design software to achieve some of our most important educational goals.
The Journal of the Learning Sciences
