Open the door to any classroom and you are sure to see challenges. Some students will certainly be absorbing their lessons – but many others won’t be, for a wide array of reasons. If you look at this scene with an understanding of learner variability, you’ll know that this is a design challenge, not a student problem. And design challenges can be solved.
Learner variability recognizes the uniqueness of each learner; not just in cognitive skills, but in social-emotional considerations, and student background factors. It is steeped in designing for both equity and excellence to ensure that each student, regardless of circumstances and external biases, will thrive and succeed in school and beyond.
In this webinar, Vic Vuchic, Chief Innovation Officer of Digital Promise, will share his insights into the modern boom in neuroscience and learning sciences research. You'll discover how much more we know now about how students learn - and how we can use that knowledge to create EdTech-enabled classrooms that can meet the diverse needs of diverse students.
During this webinar, you will:
- Become comfortable with the concept of learner variability, including why the research says it matters in designing learning opportunities for each student
- Develop knowledge on how EdTech products can be designed to reach the full diversity of learners in every classroom
- Discover best practices for running an EdTech-enabled classroom that is accessible to every student
