Welcome to LIFE of Florida!

Our secular and inclusive Florida-wide Informal Education support group acts as a resource center and clearinghouse for homeschoolers, informal learners and alternative educators interested in enriching their learning environments and maximizing their learning opportunities, as well as an advocacy center for Curiosity Driven Learning.

There is no cost to be part of LIFE of Florida -- just join in at our email discussion and announcement list, Florida LIFE, where you can download your membership card -- good for educational discounts throughout FL -- and stay informed and updated on events, issues and resources, and connect with other informal learners throughout the state.

If you're just getting started in homeschooling, be sure to check out our LIFE of Florida Quick Links, our list of Useful Docs, and our enormous collection of resources in the side columns, and visit our Inclusive Homeschool Support Groups page to find a group near you.

If you'd like your regional inclusive support group to be networked with LIFE of Florida, drop us a line with a group description, contact and other relevant information and we'll add you, free of charge, to our directory. All your group members will be automatically considered members of LIFE of Florida, and are entitled to membership cards and all the benefits we offer. Virtual school families are also welcome to enjoy our resources, support and camaraderie.

We're all inclusive and free of charge, and we're here for you!

National Naval Aviation Museum Distance Learning

The National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola established an Interactive Technology Center (ITC), allowing students and teachers statewide to learn about aeronautics and the physics of flight.
The ITC prototype is a distance-learning classroom that includes state-of-the-art technology. It will enhance learning throughout the state via video and teleconferencing capabilities, as well as provide a learning environment in which students can participate without physically being at the museum.

For more information and to schedule an "online fieldtrip" to the aviation museum for your class, please visit http://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/Education/Interactive-Technology-Center.aspx
