Starting to Homeschool Webinar Series

Starting to Homeschool

Partner Announcement: ISTE's Verizon Mobile Learning Academy (VMLA)

The goal of ISTE and our partnership with the Verizon Foundation is to help educators and district leaders effectively plan for their mobile learning initiatives. With support from the Verizon Foundation, and in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, we are achieving this goal through the Verizon Mobile Learning Academy (VMLA) Program. The VMLA Program will provide a free 10-weeks online professional learning program to 100 school/district teams from across the United States. ISTE understands that planning for a mobile learning initiative is a challenging task that involves many stakeholder decisions. The VMLA engages key educational stakeholders, working together to make improvements through synergizing resources, increasing motivation, and gaining new knowledge, skills, and competences around mobile learning. Educators can learn more and school teams can apply to participate at

Partner Announcement: AERO's 2015 Annual Conference, May 20th - 24th, 2015 in New York

We feel that this is the time for the education revolution, to empower all students, to make learner-centered education possible everywhere. This year we will again have keynotes and presentations that are connected to our mission "to help create an education revolution to make learner-centered education available to everyone." As always, we will have many workshops that explore and demonstrate effective programs in educational alternatives. This includes any learner-centered approach, such as home education, Montessori education, Waldorf education, democratic Education, progressive education, charter schools, magnet schools, etc. AERO networks all forms of learner-centered educational alternatives. The AERO conference is unlike any other conference you are likely to attend in the USA. Many attendees have described the conference as "life-changing," so you won't want to miss it!

Partner Spotlight

Roots & Shoots

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is the youth-led community action and learning program of the Jane Goodall Institute. The program builds on the legacy and vision of Dr. Jane Goodall to place the power and responsibility for creating community-based solutions to big challenges in the hands of the young people. Through the program, young people map their community to identify specific challenges their neighborhoods face. From there, they prioritize the problems, develop a plan for a solution, and take action. More information at
