About Us

The 21st Century Learning Alliance brings together industry, government and teachers to bring robustness to learning in the 21st century.

We are a unique and powerful forum that uses our skills, experience and networks to debate difficult and sensitive issues in an open and honest way.  We publish the best and most innovative practice, especially in the uses of technology for learning.  We have created a network of teachers and senior managers who are able to support each other in developing innovative learning and we challenge industry to bring to the market innovations that support teaching and learning.

The 21st Century Learning Alliance has established its credibility as a robust link between educational organisations and commerce to stimulate improvement and change through expert, evidence-based advice at the highest level.
