Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
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).

June 22, 2021 Update
The Learner Variability Project aims to broaden and deepen understanding of the whole learner in order to design more inclusive learning environments and experiences for each learner. To do so, our Learner Models translate learning sciences around key factors that address the whole learner and include strategies for educators and edtech teams to incorporate into their practice and design.
As of 2021, we have developed seven Learner Models spanning Pre-K to adult learners and are continually seeking to refine, update, and improve our Learner Models. The goal is to reflect the latest research and effective practices for learning, as well as incorporate the perspectives of educators, edtech teams, and diverse stakeholders within our work. In our most recent refresh, we conducted multiple focus groups, tapped the expertise of our Practitioner Advisory Board, and worked with researchers of color to update our Learner Models with a lens toward equity, learning differences, and actionability.
Over the coming months, we will share more information about updates to our Learner Models and content here.
