linked educatorsWelcome to 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. To achieve this, AALF helps schools develop visionary leadership and knowledgeable, innovative educators.


-- Taking ITGlobal has recently launched a Projects Registry where schools can advertise innovative global issues projects and request collaboration from other schools. This is a terrific space where you can connect with classrooms all around the world and collaborate on a variety of social issues!

-- AALF's Back-To-School Reading List: A collection of newly published books, and several worth re-visiting.

-- AALF's New Research List: A collection of newly posted research on education, 1:1, and learning.

-- The recently published whitepaper, A Policy Agenda for a 21st-Century Education, co-authored by AALF president, Bruce Dixon, and AALF Executive Director, Susan Einhorn.

This paper examines what policies can be developed that will allow educational leadership to provide learning opportunities that leverage the digitally-rich world in which young people today are growing up in? By examining the challenges and policy decisions of a large number of high profile, large-scale initiatives around the world, it is possible to identify six key policy priorities that together could be called 'world's best practice'.
