A Note On Our New Partnerhsip
| For many years now, the Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation has provided thought leadership, advocacy, and a range of resources and information to educators and school leaders across the globe in support of their 1:1 initiatives. Most recently, Susan wrote to tell you of a White Paper that we had published which sought to give policy makers a deeper understanding of the issues and challenges that have faced some of the more prominent 1:1 initiatives around the world. This reflects the growth and maturity of this sector, and the inevitable acceptance by educational leaders worldwide of the opportunities afforded to young people when they have ubiquitous access to technology.
We continue to look for ways to support the extraordinary work of people such as yourself, and much of our work of recent times has been in seeking ways to enhance the critical role coaching can play in supporting a shift in teaching practice. As you would expect, the AALF website will continue to be a growing library of resources, research, and stories from educators around the world, and we will continue to develop White Papers and other material to support educators and leadership.
Additionally we have recently sought to give you increased access to more articles by a broader cross-section of well-respected writers, by partnering with Modern Learner Media, a company I founded with Will Richardson nearly a year ago. This partnership will provide you with more than 40 articles a year, focused on topics that are impacting education leadership and transformation, commissioned independently of any commercial sponsorship or advertising.
This will replace our less frequent AALF newsletter, and you will now have access to the articles through the bi-weekly newsletter Educating Modern Learners, edited by Audrey Watters; in turn this will allow Susan, Justina, and the AALF team to focus on the development of other resources such as the coaching material.
For those who want to dig deeper, there is an option to upgrade to a premium subscription to EML, however, there is absolutely no obligation to do so; though this has also proven popular, particularly for school leaders. If for any reason you do not want to receive Educating Modern Learners each week, please let us know.
I hope you will find real benefit in the regular articles and links you\\\'ll find in Educating Modern Learners, and in turn continue to support the work of the Foundation around the world.
