"I’m really excited to announce a new undertaking that my good friend Bruce Dixon from Melbourne, Australia and I are launching today: Raising Modern Learners (RML).
"As the proud owner of two teenagers (where’s the handbook?), I’ve been more and more drawn to the question of how we begin to educate parents around the very big learning and schooling shifts that are occurring because of the Web and the technologies that support it. Specifically, how can we develop and nurture in parents a new context for learning that will allow them to understand the changes many of us are fighting for in our classrooms. Neither Bruce nor I have seen any co-ordinated attempts to offer parents a truly different concept of schooling that synthesizes technological change with progressive ideas around learning and a new vision for the role of schools in our communities.
"We’re hoping our free, weekly newsletter and accompanying site will begin that work."
