The Learning Revolution in brief
A summary of the world's best learning breakthroughs

International researchers Gordon Dryden, from New Zealand, and Dr. Jeannette Vos, from California say the world needs a learning revolution to match the revolution in communications and technology.
They say the main elements of that revolution are twofold, linking the modern marvels of brain research with the power of instantly available information and knowledge.

In the introduction to The Learning Revolution, which has sold around 9 million copies in 1999, they highlight key breakthroughs to show that revolution in action
