This WISE Book has taken the author and photographer on a world tour -to Brazil, China, Ghana, India, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States. They visit school and projects, and meet with educators and thought leaders. The book explores how today's educators are facing the challenge of what to teach and how to teach in a connected society. Using technology as a touchstone, the journey leads to a wider exploration of why societies are shaped as they are, the role of education systems within them, and how they may transform to meet tomorrow's big challeng! es.

Highlighting the importance of the human element in knowing how to make best use of advancing technologies, Graham Brown-Martin comments, "Our mission is to get under the skin of the debate around technology in education to understand and report back on what is working and what are the obstacles as well as the triumphs."

Photographer Newsha Tavakolian adds, "Technology has certainly opened up so many opportunities, giving access to a wealth of information and resources for so many. But technology is not the only thing that has changed education, and certainly not the whole story. For me it was important to also capture the power of human interactions."
