The original text has been modified by the addition of a few commas and a change of the word “which” to “that” in a couple of places.

This book contains a series of 20 Information Age Education Newsletters that explore various elements of the educational issues that will confront our society during the 21st century. The principal focus of the series is on the dramatic developments currently occurring in the cognitive neurosciences and computer technology. These promise to play an especially significant role in reshaping educational policy and practice.
The authors of the articles are all widely known and respected for their work in the areas in which they wrote. They were asked to select a general issue that they consider important to 21st century education and to discuss the elements of it that they consider especially significant to educators. Some authors focus on simply exploring the issue itself and others also suggest educational applications.
