Learner diversity in classrooms has grown tremendously over the past 30 to 40 years. However, our education system has been slow to support millions of students who are bright, capable, and eager to learn, but are held back by traditional pathways designed for the mythical “average.” To meet this challenge, Digital Promise Global has developed the Learner Positioning SystemsTM (LPS) project. Steeped in learning science research, LPS helps educators and product developers understand how learners vary and provides instructional and product design strategies to support the full diversity of learners.

In this edWebinar, David Ciulla and Vic Vuchic explored how learning science research can help us better support all learners, and how ed-tech product development can be guided by what we know about learners.
