The Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation
Transforming Learning Through Universal Access to Technology
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.

Co-authored by Gary Stager and Sylvia Martinez, Invent To Learn is the first book to capture the excitement of the maker movement and share the educational case for bringing making, tinkering, and engineering to every classroom. Be sure to check it out!>
We've also come across two articles recently that we urge all 1:1 educators to check out!
The first is an interview with 1:1 visionary Alan Kay, and discusses, among other things, the Dynabook, his decades-old vision of a portable suite of hardware, software, programming tools and services which would add up to the ultimate creative environment for kids of all ages.
The second, "For the Love of Laptops," was written by progressive educator, Gary Stager, and details his concern about the use of tablets for learning in schools.
