Bruce Dixon is the co-founder and president of the Anywhere Anytime Learning Foundation. He has more than 25 years experience working with schools and technology, as a teacher, principal, software developer and an undergraduate college lecturer.
In 1987, Bruce and a partner established an educational technology company, Computelec. As a national company of more than 90 staff, the company was fundamental to the establishment and growth of laptop programs in more than 80 schools across 3 states in Australia, before he sold it in the mid-nineties to focus on consulting.
Since 1995 he has worked extensively in North America, and was in part responsible for developing the 1:1 program there, through the Anytime Anywhere Learning initiative. He consults to schools, School Districts, Education Departments, Ministries of Education as well as technology companies such as Microsoft, HP-Compaq, Apple, Bertelsmann and Toshiba on 1:1 teaching and technology in education. Over the past 3 years, Bruce has consulted in Australia, the US, Canada, Germany, UK and New Zealand, and has been invited to speak at Conferences in Australia, Asia, South Africa, the United Kingdom and North America. Bruce is also director of IdeasLab, Victoria, Australia.
