Each year The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education recognizes outstanding educational leaders whose accomplishments have significantly improved the quality of American education and made a lasting difference in the lives of countless students. The pantheon of previous McGraw Prize winners constitutes a virtual “Who’s Who” in American education. This year we sought out individuals who are using technology to advance the learning sciences and transform education. Therefore, we now have the pleasure of honoring three great educational entrepreneurs: Robert Beichner, Mitchel Resnick and Julie Young.
To tap their collective insight, McGraw-Hill asked Beichner, Resnick and Young to collaborate on a white paper which draws on their perspectives spanning across elementary, secondary and post-secondary education. The paper hones in on one of the unheralded benefits of educational technology: to enhance and strengthen the human connections that facilitate learning.
