(TR10) A Cognitive Apprenticeship for Disadvantaged Students

The authors propose that the changing nature of work in society provides a potential meeting ground where education for the advantaged and disadvantaged can come together in a curriculum where educational tasks reflect the future nature of work in society. Work is becoming computer based and requires more ability to learn and think. Hence, a curriculum built around tasks that require learning and thinking in a computer-based environment is a curriculum that will make sense to both advantaged and disadvantaged students and will education them in ways that make sense for society at large.
