Learning Without Frontiers

Learning Without Frontiers (LWF) was founded by Graham Brown-Martin in 2004. We bring together international thought leaders, policy makers and innovators from the education, technology and entertainment sectors to connect and engage in a new dialogue about the future of learning. Recognising how affordable, disruptive technologies challenge traditional approaches to industrial scale education the LWF community has taken a globally respected position of leadership in the use of mobile, gaming, social media, open source and other digital platforms to support learning. The discussion, however, is not about technology but how society is changing in the digital age and how our approach and platforms for learning reflect, embrace and respond to those changes.
