Modern Learners Community

Where people gather to learn.

 Let’s Design a More Joyful Learning Experience

The Modern Learners Community is where educators collaborate to build more joyful learning experiences for all. Join us today!

We’ve been waiting for change to come, and now it’s here—but it’s not what we hoped for. It’s time to get proactive and CREATE the kind of schools we want to work in and learn in. 

You’re in education to make a difference, and it frustrates you to see so many learners slipping through the cracks. The pandemic shifted everything overnight, and while you’re eager to get back to normal, you know “normal” wasn’t all that great to begin with. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a new, better “normal.” 

While you wish there was a “magic bullet” solution, you know some changes take time. You're ready to work; you just need guidance and support.

The Modern Learners Community is a training program, support group, and mastermind all rolled into one. We help you create an inclusive, joyful environment where every learner can reach their full potential and feel seen every step of the way.

We don't just provide tools for change; we help you dig deep, ask tough questions, and purposefully design experiences that make learners and educators flourish. As a Modern Learners Community member, you gain more than professional development courses—you’re plugged into a network of people who support your goals. You'll never feel alone because you'll be surrounded by peers who can help you get back on track.

Modern Learners Community keeps you up-to-date on educational trends, helps you solve complex problems, grow in your professional identity, and create change faster than you could alone.

What makes the Modern Learners Community different from other professional organizations?  

We’re about collaborative discussions and spirit-driven interactions, learning with and from each other. We want you to dig into your own expertise, share what you know, ask hard questions, brainstorm creative solutions, and try new things.

Will this be worth the money?  

If you show up, do the work, and commit to creating sustainable change in your local schools, you will see results. We’re here to help you stay accountable to your goals and your local community.

How much time will this take?  

This isn’t a course or program—it’s a community on a mission. Creating the type of change we want won't happen overnight, but we can achieve a lot with consistent action toward our goals.

Conversations cover a wide range of topics, from learning definitions to student agency, inclusive education, and trends influencing learning.
