New technology has become a runaway train, with impending revolutions in robotics and AI that will change society dramatically. This book addresses the most pressing question of all: how do we best prepare our children for this tech-heavy future, so they have a fighting chance for employment and quality of life even as underemployment and inequality continue to grow? Book 1: Education and Technology provides tutorials of three key issues that every parent wants to track: the STEM education movement; school reform, standards and teacher accountability; and digital learning tools that are upending traditional classrooms. The final chapter provides a basic recipe for how to engage, at home and at school, to ensure that your children gain Technology Fluency, which will be critical to their future success no matter what career directions they choose.
