A blueprint for transforming where, when, and how young people learn

Who Should Read This Book

Are you a leader of a school or district moving to 1:1? Than this book is for you. It provides a clear roadmap for you and your initiative team members, outlining the questions you, as leader, need to ask, and the actions that will help you find the answers you need. If you are planning to implement a 1:1, BYOD, or 1 to many initiative, don’t start without first reading this guide. Also great for schools looking to revitalize their 1:1 initiative!

A Unique Format

As you work through #AnytimeAnywhereLearners, you’ll need to develop the answers to many questions, use the links to explore a range of ideas, and build your plan, tailored to your needs and vision. The book is intended to be a workbook, not just a text, designed to encourage you to interact with the text, write your notes, and highlight and check off ideas important to you.

Additional Features

#AnytimeAnywhereLearners also includes a number of Critical Conversations – essays, short articles, and other insights and opinions designed to inform and provoke new ideas, new conversations, and, perhaps, disagreement. They provide additional depth and context for many of the topics you’ll be exploring in this book, as well as important questions that should be considered as you engage in each stage of your initiative.

Transforming Learning Through Universal Access to Technology

How do you build a modern learning environment, one that unleashes the thinking, doing, and creating opportunities made possible when technology is ubiquitous, personal, and wisely used?

#AnytimeAnywhereLearners is the essential guide for leaders of schools and districts seeking to create a learning environment built on the simple proposition that young people will have unprecedented opportunities for learning when they have unlimited access to their own personal, portable, fully functional digital device.

Since 1989, not only have individual schools and districts moved to what is often referred to as 1:1, but whole states and, in some cases, countries, have invested in providing their students access to their own personal, portable devices. The #AnytimeAnywhereLearning framework is based on the experiences of thousands of these 1:1 schools around the world and the courageous and committed educators leading them.

This in depth guide, with links to hundreds of additional resources, will help you make critical decisions, know the strategic questions to ask, understand what will be required of district personnel and school leadership, and have realistic expectations about what the outcomes will be.

Anywhere Anytime Learning could easily have been a tome full of solutions, instead it is priceless provocation providing the starting point to a collegiate conversation.....To me, it is the one book which every technology integrator, let alone school leader, should read and reflect on.
