Welcome to the Learning Revolution.

The technologies of the Internet and the Web are reshaping when, where, and from whom we learn--and even how we think about learning.

The Learning Revolution Project highlights our "conference 2.0" virtual and physical events and those of our over 200 partners in the learning professions. We also highlight good conversations about learning taking place between educators, learners, leaders, and others from the school, library, museum, work, adult, online, non-traditional and home learning worlds. The Internet is shifting the boundaries of these worlds, and we believe that as they increasingly overlap and integrate these conversations will be critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.

Our projects have members from 200+ countries and the Learning Revolution newsletter is sent to 130,000 each week. To receive it, please join this network.

Weekly Updates

  • September's Volunteer Opportunity. Volunteering at professional events is a great way to make connections in your field (especially for graduate students!), and we are proud to support events that foster these types of collaborative relationships. We'd love your help for our inaugural (and free) Gaming in Ed conference, which begins the week of September 15th. We will have a full day of crowdsourced sessions on Thursday, September 18th, where we could use your help in supporting our presenters. There is a full schedule of amazing sessions on game-based learning topics, and volunteers will be able to connect with these outstanding presenters. Sign up to volunteer at Gaming in Ed!
  • Library 2.014 - October 8th + 9th. We are gearing up for another amazing year of the Library 2.014 Conference.
