Since 1980, New Horizons for Learning (NHFL) has served as a leading-edge resource for understanding learning. Concerned that important research was not reaching most classrooms, founder Dee Dickinson decided to create a network to reach teachers with new information she would have loved to have when she was in the classroom. NHFL’s role has always been to give visibility to effective teaching and learning practices and ideas that have not yet reached the mainstream. Additionally, NHFL has worked in coordination with other reputable networks and learning communities to synthesize the information and turn information into knowledge and knowledge into practice. The website has also been quoted in numerous books and journals, and has received prestigious awards, including one from the International Society for Technology in Education as one of the best education sites on the Internet.

After 26 years of voluntary service as a non-profit network, NHFL was in search of a new host due to the retirement of its founder, Dee Dickinson.Today, New Horizons for Learning has transferred to the editorial team at Johns Hopkins University School of Education. It remains a non-profit, international network of educators focused on identifying, communicating, and implementing the most effective teaching and learning strategies at all ages and abilities.
