What if we could unlock the potential in every child? As it turns out, we can.
Apple's iconic cofounder Steve Jobs had a powerful vision for education: employing technology to make an enormous impact on the lives of millions of students. To realize this vision, Jobs tapped John D. Couch, a trusted engineer and executive with a passion for education. Couch believed the real purpose of education was to help children discover their unique potential and empower them to reach beyond their perceived limitations.
Today, technology is increasingly integrated into every aspect of our lives, rewiring our homes, our jobs, and even our brains. Most important, it presents an opportunity to rewire education to enrich and strengthen our schools, children, and society.
In Rewiring Education, Couch shares expertise gained from fifty-plus years in education and technology. He takes listeners behind Apple's major research studies, Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) and ACOT2, highlighting the powerful effects of the Challenge-Based Learning (CBL) framework. Going beyond Apple's walls, he also introduces some of the extraordinary parents, educators, and entrepreneurs from around the world who are already utilizing new science-backed methods and technologies to benefit all children, from those who struggle to honor students.

"From his perch as Apple's first vice president of education, Couch engages listeners with another manifesto on how technology will improve education in ways hitherto unknown. Narrator P.J. Ochlan's voice, with its slight nasal resonance, conveys Couch's writing in a congenial style but fails to be as inspiring as Couch's message. Even as the author waxes on about excited and invested students, Ochlan's voice lacks emotional energy and enthusiasm. Couch's passion seems genuine, and he offers ways that technology can enhance individualized learning through tools like tablets, virtual reality, and augmented reality.
