Modern Learners Community is an online network of emerging and aspiring educational leaders who are creating real, meaningful change in schools. If you're ready to push beyond the buzzwords, stop tweaking at the edges, and find a tribe to build a movement with, MLC is right for you.
MLC gives you access to a global network of educational change leaders and connections to members both near you and in your field of expertise. Our members find and share thought-provoking content to spark genuine dialogue around leadership and learning topics.
Our conversations, curated content, and live online events are guided by members’ real-life questions, experiences, and challenges. While we consistently encourage and support each other, we'll often push back with concrete examples and next-level ideas.
Member contributions are key to the success of MLC. Your posts, comments, questions, reflections, and conversations with fellow members are what drives MLC as a stimulating yet nurturing personal and professional learning destination.
Modern Learners Community is a diverse, global group of over 300 teachers, principals, and educational leaders who want to commit to grow courageously as agents of change.
The conversations that emerge in MLC are the result of the questions about modern educational leadership that are driven by our members and their interests, as well as provocations from the Modern Learners team. We focus on topics like "What is learning?", common language, student agency, strategies for change, trends and technologies that influence learning in schools, and much more. Together, we're crafting a vision for what reimagined, modern practice in schools looks and feels like.
If you’re sincerely interested in pushing high-bar change in schools, the isolation can be brutal. A vibrant, respectful, challenging community changes all of that. We frequent the edges of the educational space, and we curate and bring a dynamic flow of information and conversation directly to our members. You’ll also get real-time support from your co-members in the trenches, those who are doing authentic change work in schools, just like you.
You can access MLC on your laptop or through our iOS and Android apps. We use Zoom.us for online live sessions and events and Mighty Networks for our online community.
As a member of MLC, you have access to blog posts, links, polls, shared resources and much more, all available to you when you want or need it. In addition, we hold regular live discussions and coaching sessions in Zoom with the Modern Learners team and special guests.
To meet the needs of our global community, event times and topics vary. The good news is all of our events are archived and added to the community. If you can’t attend live, you can watch the recording on your own time and in your own space.
In MLC, teachers and school leaders interact and dialogue in a collaborative spirit driven by a shared purpose: learning. No one exists in a silo. We curate and create content specifically to satisfy members’ curiosities in relevant and practical ways. This isn’t traditional professional development, and that’s a good thing. Connections happen daily, not annually at a conference or through routine email blasts. We push your agenda, not ours.
An annual MLC subscription is $159.99. And we are so confident that you'll love MLC, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee. Your only risk is missing out on the greatest professional learning experience of your career. Join us today!

Hi. I'm Lyn Hilt, the Modern Learners Community manager, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you in MLC.
A little about me... I am an educational leadership and instructional technology consultant. Over the past eighteen years, I've worked as an elementary school principal, instructional technology coach, and classroom teacher in both elementary and middle school settings.
I've also served as an adjunct instructor and hybrid course developer for Cabrini University’s educational leadership graduate program. I've had the privilege of working with teams and schools across the country on a variety of topics including G Suite for Education integration, professional learning networks, digital citizenship, innovative professional development, and educational leadership in the digital age.
I enjoy traveling with my family and relish experiencing life’s adventures with my energetic young children. You can read more of my reflections on leading, teaching and learning on my blog, Learning in Technicolor.
We know MLC is a valuable resource for your journey and we know our content will have you thinking about your school in new ways and challenge your old assumptions. We’ve worked hard to make this community the best of its kind but we understand you might be skeptical.
Give us 30 days to wow you with unprecedented access to change leaders, focused conversations with people who have been there/done that, fluff-free content, new relationships, and an easy-to-use online platform.
If you’re not convinced after 30 days that we can help you overcome the obstacles in your way and build invaluable relationships, you can cancel your membership. No questions asked.
