Description

Increasing success rates in higher education requires a new approach towards effective teaching and learning. Harnessing America's Wasted Talent provides tools to make this happen by highlighting the flaws in higher education, like using only the orthodox college model, preventing opportunity and wasting talent for many students. This reference explores Second Life, iTunes University, and Web 2.0 to capitalize on the capacity of every learner. This resource is essential reading for every college leader and policy-makers to meet all of students' educational needs.
