About the Author
A parent of two teenagers, Will Richardson has spent the last dozen years developing an international reputation as a leading thinker and writer about the intersection of social online learning networks and education. He was one of a handful of original education bloggers (willrichardson.com) and his work has appeared in numerous journals, newspapers, and magazines such as Ed Leadership, District Administration, Education Week, the New York Times and English Journal. He is an outspoken advocate for change in schools and classrooms in the context of the diverse new learning opportunities that the web and other technologies now offer.
Will has authored four books, most recently Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information are Everywhere (September, 2012) published by TED books and based on his TED talk in Melbourne, Australia. Why School? is a best-selling TED book. In total, his books have sold over two hundred thousand copies worldwide.
A former public school educator of twenty-two years, Will is a co-founder of Modern Learner Media and copublisher of Educating Modern Learners (modernlearners.com) which is a site dedicated to helping educational leaders and policy makers develop new contexts for new conversations around education. Over the past eight years, he has spoken to tens of thousands of educators in over a dozen countries about the merits of online learning networks for personal and professional growth. Will lives in rural New Jersey with his wife Wendy and his children Tess and Tucker.

"Our goal should not be to learn new technologies in order to become better teachers in the traditional sense. Our goal is to develop expertise in powerful new technologies to become better learners for ourselves and for our students, who may lack other learning models."
"To us, modern learning is grounded in one important word that represents the present foundational shift: freedom."
"one of the most powerful shifts we can make as educators is to put ourselves on the same level as the learner, to become an equal partner in the learning."
"And, importantly, we have to let go of our fear that they may not learn the curriculum. In most cases, they learn more than what’s in the curriculum and on the test."
