In a very simple way of saying things, Schank shows most of the flaws of the current educational system and not only proposes changes but shows how it is possible to do it with the help of computers to bring individualized instruction. And he shows the great software they have been doing in the Institute of Learning Sciences. This is really a great book with very strong points of view, something I haven't seen in the latest years. It made me think and and rethink about education and I expect to feel still more effects in the future. You don't need to buy the book if you prefer to see it on the Internet. But, for me it's nice to keep this book with me. It's a classic one.
