Anytime, Anywhere synthesizes existing research and practices in the emerging field of student-centered learning, and includes profiles of schools that have embraced this approach.

Educators have argued that students should be at the center of learning, constructing new knowledge based on what is interesting to them, and receiving guidance in classrooms—or anywhere they may happen to be— from adults with whom they have positive relationships. Now, with the advent of new technologies, researchers are confirming the value of this approach by showing how the human brain and memory work in response to different environments, and how digital tools give students powerful new ways to express what they’ve learned."

Educators have argued that students should be at the center of learning, constructing new knowledge based on what is interesting to them, and receiving guidance in classrooms—or anywhere they may happen to be—from adults with whom they have positive relationships. Now, with the advent of new technologies, researchers are confirming the value of this approach by showing how the human brain and memory work in response to different environments, and how digital tools give students powerful new ways to express what they’ve learned.

Anytime, Anywhere synthesizes existing research and practices in the emerging field of student-centered learning, and includes profiles of schools that have embraced this approach.

“This book highlights an important truth: for students to grasp and retain more complex content and concepts, educators need to ensure their students have a much greater stake in their own learning. Just getting kids to comply with adult wishes is not going to be enough anymore. The contributors to this volume represent a wide range of expertise, from the the conceptual to the practical, from research to reality. Collectively, they outline the path to new and revolutionary educational models. The book is a must-read for every educator and anyone else interested in getting all students to higher levels of learning.” — David T. Conley, professor, University of Oregon, and CEO, Educational Policy Improvement Center

“Why do some schools and learning models create success for all students—including low-income students and students at risk? This important book offers case studies of places where students are engaged, known, and valued, and impelled to take ownership of their learning and persevere toward success. It offers theory, research, and practical strategies to help educators understand and implement student-centered learning.” — Ron Berger, chief program officer, Expeditionary Learning

Rebecca E. Wolfe is project director of Students at the Center and senior program manager at Jobs for the Future (JFF). Adria Steinberg is vice president at JFF. Nancy Hoffman is vice president and senior advisor at JFF.
