While the world outside the classroom has developed, classroom instruction has remained stagnant. Students are encouraged to just cover the curriculum and the power of purpose and meaningful contribution are absent. Furthermore this old way of doing things doesn't credit students' natural curiosity to direct their own learning. In Who Owns the Learning?, author Alan November uses his Digital Learning Farm education model to show teachers how technology allows students to take ownership of their learning, create their own learning tools, and participate in work that has meaning to them and others. In this model, every student is a teacher and a global publisher. In chapter one, readers will learn what a Digital Learning Farm is and how it can optimize learning. Chapters two through five each focus on a specific job for students in the digital learning farm and provide examples of students working through them. November also offers a story about how the job is being utilized in classrooms, techniques for educators to leverage the work in their classrooms, and questions for discussion in each chapter. Finally, November offers an example of students owning their learning through technology in chapter six. This book is a guide to teachers who want to move teaching and learning into the 21st century incorporating technology and opportunities for students to direct their own learning into instruction.

Review quote

"When Alan November first shared his concept of the Digital Learning Farm, educators sat up and paid close attention. As usual, he was onto something fresh, thought provoking, and of imminent value. Based on years of experience throughout the world, November describes in detail what the contemporary learner can look like in action, in any school setting. For the forward-thinking teacher, school leader, professional developer, and curriculum writer, Who Owns the Learning? is a must." -- Heidi Hayes Jacobs "Author and Director of the Curriculum 21 Project, Rye, New York"
