FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

ANYTIME ANYWHERE LEARNING FOUNDATION RELEASES NEW BOOK FOR EDUCATION LEADERS

 

Written by 1:1 Experts, #AnytimeAnywhereLearners Provides Blueprint for Redesigning Schools for Today’s Learners

 

Bellevue, WA – January 27, 2016 – The Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation (AALF) today announces a new book focused on helping education leaders transform where, when, and how young people learn as schools move to technology-rich learning environments. Written by industry veterans Bruce Dixon and Susan Einhorn – whose efforts have helped pioneer 1:1 learning worldwide – #AnytimeAnywhereLearners is published by AALF, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting schools around the world. The book is available on Amazon now.

#AnytimeAnywhereLearners is both a guide and working document that schools can build on, add to, and refer to as they design an initiative that fits their vision. Our goal was to create a blueprint for school and district leaders to help them successfully plan and implement 1:1, one that provides more than just a list of actions, but also the strategic questions school leaders need to ask to make critical decisions and set realistic long-term expectations and goals,” says Susan Einhorn. “It is the one guide school leaders will need as they move to 1:1, delving deep with the expectation that school leaders understand a transformation of this size takes effort and an investment of not only money, but time and commitment to an outcome that will be reflected in the learning experiences of their students.”

Einhorn, AALF’s Executive Director, has worked in education for more than 30 years. As the former president of Logo Computer Systems Inc. (LCSI), she worked for many years with renowned educator and learning technology pioneer Seymour Papert. This and her experiences in designing and developing some of the first coding programs for children and a number of other constructivist products and books for students and teachers led to her work with AALF, where she develops programs and resources to support 1:1 schools around the world. Bruce Dixon, co-founder of AALF, has worked as a strategic advisor to governments, policymakers, and school leaders on six continents.  His insights have enabled education leaders around the world to better manage large-scale, 1:1 personal technology deployments, ensuring outcomes that drive both school improvement and ultimately systemic transformation. He has keynoted for UNESCO, the OECD and has been recognized by the National School Boards Association and the Smithsonian for his contribution to education and the use of technology for learning.

According to Dixon, a former teacher and school principal, “We wrote this book to help educators make the transition to the modern learning environment today’s students need. Based on our work with thousands of schools worldwide over the last 25 years, #AnytimeAnywhereLearners provides a roadmap to help schools effectively achieve their vision of what ubiquitous technology makes possible.”  He adds, “All children should have access to unlimited opportunities to learn, the opportunities that only become possible when each student has his or her own personal, portable, fully functional device. But merely deploying devices is not enough! To see real change and impact, it is absolutely essential to begin by understanding why you are undertaking this shift, how you envision learning will be in your school in five years, and what this will mean in terms of learning and teaching.”
#AnytimeAnywhereLearners is available now at Amazon for $49.99. For more information, visit www.anytimeanywherelearners.com and follow AALF on Twitter at @AALF.

The goal of the Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation (AALF) is to ensure that all children have access to unlimited opportunities to learn anytime and anywhere and that they have the tools that make this possible. AALF is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
