American children spend an average of 6.6 hours in school each day.1 How do they spend their hours outside of school?  We explore this question  in our web conference, Creating a Conversation About Anywhere, Anytime Learning, held  on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, from 1:00–2:15 p.m. (EST). 

This is the second web conference in our year-long series within HFRP Interact, in which we examine principles of the expanded definition of family engagement in the context of anywhere, anytime learning.
