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 #AnytimeAnywhereLearners framework is based on the experiences of thousands of these 1:1 schools around the world and the courageous and committed educators leading them.

Not a checklist or set of instructions for an easy-to-assemble, 21st century school, the #AnytimeAnywhereLearners framework lays out a roadmap designed to help you, as district or school leader, determine what you need to know and do at each step of your 1:1 planning and development process. Written by Bruce Dixon, President and Co-founder of the Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation(AALF), and Susan Einhorn, AALF Executive Director, 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.
