Klopfer and Haas Release The More We Know

Eric Klopfer and Jason Haas release The More We Know: NBC News, Educational Innovation, and Learning from Failure. In The More We Know, Klopfer and Haas describe the rise and fall of iCue, an interactive learning venture that launched in 2006 and combined social networking, online video and gaming. In focusing on what iCue can teach us¬ about the challenges of innovation in education, they remind us of all that we can learn from failure. James Paul Glee calls The More We Know a must read for would-be reformers and “for all the rest, a delicious insider’s tale.”
