On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
What’s New at LVP?
We’ve spent summer 2021 refreshing our Learner Variability Navigator (LVN) with an equity lens. The goal is to reflect the latest research and effective practices for learning, as well as further incorporate the perspectives of educators, edtech teams, and diverse stakeholders within our work. We conducted multiple focus groups, tapped the expertise of our Practitioner Advisory Board, and worked with researchers of color to update our Learner Models, focusing on culturally responsive practice and social emotional learning.
