The U.S. student population has grown more diverse over the past several decades. Recent research from the learning sciences has advanced our understanding of this learner variability and the importance of grounding educational design and practice in the individual — rather than the fiction of an average student. Simultaneously, technological innovation has moved closer to realizing the promise of evidence-based personalization.
 
Digital Promise's Learner Variability Project curates enormous amounts of learning science research and provides free, open source visualizations and tools to empower education product designers and practitioners to understand learner variability and how to design for it. In this free webinar, you will learn about Digital Promise’s definition of learner variability, the research that supports it, and how you can use free research-based tools that will help more learners succeed in using your education products.
