✏The curriculum experiment Book Summary : This book focuses on the interface between curriculum policy practice and social change in technology-driven advanced societies, and the challenges this presents for education in the 21st century. It begins with both an autobiographical account of the experience of curriculum change in England over the last 40 years and an analysis of a major issue which emerged during that period, namely, the teacher's role in curriculum development. It then moves on to look at what the author believes to be a current manifestation of contemporary curriculum policy and practice in England: student disaffection from schooling. It is argued that the now widespread phenomenon of disaffection can be explained by the failure of curriculum policy-making to respond to the complexity of social change in an advanced modern society. Drawing on the experience of attempts at radical innovation in the curriculum within the UK and other countries, the author develops a framework for curriculum policy making and development which he argues will enable education to meet the challenges of social change. In the process he undertakes a critique of the currently fashionable school effectiveness and improvement movements and argues that they are underpinned by outmoded views of the roles and functions of schools.

✏Computational Experiment Approach to Advanced Secondary Mathematics Curriculum Book Summary : This book promotes the experimental mathematics approach in the context of secondary mathematics curriculum by exploring mathematical models depending on parameters that were typically considered advanced in the pre-digital education era. This approach, by drawing on the power of computers to perform numerical computations and graphical constructions, stimulates formal learning of mathematics through making sense of a computational experiment. It allows one (in the spirit of Freudenthal) to bridge serious mathematical content and contemporary teaching practice. In other words, the notion of teaching experiment can be extended to include a true mathematical experiment. When used appropriately, the approach creates conditions for collateral learning (in the spirit of Dewey) to occur including the development of skills important for engineering applications of mathematics. In the context of a mathematics teacher education program, the book addresses a call for the preparation of teachers capable of utilizing modern technology tools for the modeling-based teaching of mathematics with a focus on methods conducive to the improvement of the whole STEM education at the secondary level. By the same token, using the book’s pedagogy and its mathematical content in a pre-college classroom can assist teachers in introducing students to the ideas that develop the foundation of engineering profession.

✏The Ministry of Education Film Experiment Book Summary : This book uncovers a unique post-war film production programme and explores how this first British government intervention into ‘visual education’ is relevant to film education today. In 1943 the Ministry of Education took the decision to sponsor production of an experimental programme of nonfiction films specifically for the classroom. Almost 70 years later, the British Film Institute launched a new strategic development plan, at the centre of which was the aim to prove the value of ‘21st century literacy’ to Government and embed film in the school curriculum. This aim had been the focus of film education initiatives in previous decades, without resolution. Through archival research into original documents and the films, The Ministry of Education Film Experiment builds a story of conflict and collaboration between the Ministry and the filmmakers, offering an insight into why the struggle for government recognition of film education still remains.

✏The Irish Education Experiment Book Summary : This volume focuses on the creation, structure and evolution of the Irish national system of education. It illustrates how the system was shaped by the religious, social and political realities of nineteenth century Ireland and discusses the effects that the system had upon the Irish nation: namely that it was the chief means by which the country was transformed from one in which illiteracy predominated to one in which most people, even the poorest, could read and write.
