Rough Diamonds
From Dr. Wilfried R. Vanhonacker’s Rough Diamonds: “The future of formal education is about enabling and supporting lifelong learning.” Today, formal education is not focused on learning. Instead, it is focused on efficient delivery. It has become a machine that increasingly shuns its core responsibilities. Reality is about to hold it to account. In the twenty-first century, technology is changing at an exponential pace. The knowledge that students gain during their formal education is becoming outdated more rapidly. Without a passion for learning and without a basis and support for continued learning, they can write off their future. In Rough Diamonds, Dr. Wilfried R. Vanhonacker offers personal observations that challenge every aspect of formal education, all with the aim to inspire thoughts on a new paradigm for education and to amplify the momentum for change.

Character/Execution: 9 out of 10
Overall: 9.25 out of 10

Assessment:

Idea: The author presents an instructive book on learning and teaching in a new environment, especially now that the pandemic has seriously impacted traditional education. It's a book that takes traditional learning modules and provides a modern twist; it’s timely, well-written, and creative.

Prose: The author delivers a well-structured and thoughtful book on education. He presents a business model that he calls ‘out-of-the-box,’ but the business model is more in the box in 2021 than traditionally structured educational how-to books.

Originality: Vanhonacker takes a novel, hands-on approach to the topic of education by urging teachers to help their students reconnect with a passion for learning and to embrace adaptability, variability, and innovation.

Character/Execution: Rough Diamonds has a strong hook. As the author writes, "a new reality will shake education to its core." Educators and parents will embrace Vanhonacker’s thoughtful articulation concerning a new future (and present) for how we teach.
