Can you help shape the future of informal learning? Apply within.

A group of folk who I believe are spearheading informal learning in the most unlikely of ways are looking for some help, and readers are almost certainly likely to be able to help.

Do you undertake some informal learning already?
Do you want to do more informal learning but find you can't: lack of time, motivation or space?

If you answer yes to either question and want to help out a gang of really tuned-in people, please leave a comment on this post, making sure to include an email address, and someone will be in touch shortly. And thanks - you'll be participating in one of the most exciting informal learning opportunities going.

This sounds really exciting - would love to know more as we're doing work in this area. Have retweeted this to others at the #ukyouth event

I am always carrying on some form of informal learning. Happy to be involved.

Add me to the list as I have had an interest in peer learning in the classroom previously.

Its an intriguing request = how can I refuse :)

I'm engaging in informal learning constantly, not sure any one recogises this, I'm watching younger children and their informal learning. Happy to be involved in adventures around this.
