Teaching for Tomorrow by Michael McQueen

Students in classrooms today will enter a world very different to the one their teachers and parents have known.
In light of the uncertainty that lies ahead, it is more important than ever that educators keep their finger of the pulse of technological and societal trends in order to help students prepare for them.
As we brace for a perfect storm of technological and social change, the need for educational transformation has never been greater.
In this research-rich book, Michael explores:
- The 10 megatrends that will dominate the coming decades
- 4 ‘capability gaps’ in today’s students that may leave them ill-equipped for what lies ahead
- The key paradigm shifts educators will need to make to remain relevant in turbulent times
- A range of proven strategies for making innovation and agility part of the DNA in education

Jane Caro releases her newest book Accidental Feminists

In Jane's new book she explains, Women over fifty-five are of the generation that changed everything. We didn't expect to. Or intend to. We weren't brought up much differently from the women who came before us, and we rarely identified as feminists, although almost all of us do now. Accidental Feminists is our story. It explores how the world we lived in-with the pill and a regular pay cheque-transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world. It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.
