Welcome to the Learning Revolution.

The Learning Revolution Project holds online and physical learning events, and highlights professional development opportunities from a network of 200 partners in the learning professions. The great majority of these events are free to attend.

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 technologies of the Internet and the Web are reshaping when, where, and from whom we learn--and even how we think about learning. As the boundaries of these learning worlds increasingly overlap, we believe these conversations will be critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.

Our Learning Revolution newsletter is sent to 130,000 each week. To receive it, please join this network.

Weekly Updates

  • Special Library 2.014 Keynote with Michael Stephens on "Finding Balance: Reflective Practice and the Profession" - Wednesday, October 15th at 7pm ET. Join us for a special post-conference keynote session with information superstar, Michael Stephens, tomorrow night! Reflective practice is mindfulness to the nth degree. Information professionals should be thoughtful about the decisions they make, about the projects they take on, and about how we put ourselves out there in the online world. We must always keep working to be there, to be present, to be at the edge of what’s happening, and to be very visible while focusing on people, not technology, not the collection. Those are merely tools. Join the session at https://sas.elluminate.com/d.jnlp?sid=2008350&password=LIB2014Part121. We're looking forward to seeing you there, and be sure to share this special invitation with your friends and colleagues!

This Week's Quote

In some cases we learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
