Tool: Learner Positioning Systems from Digital Promise Global

A tool for finding research-based strategies to support all learners

Overview

This tool, created by Digital Promise Global, supports the implementation of research-based instructional strategies. With LPS, you can explore Learner Factors that current research shows have the greatest impact on learning and discover strategies and features to make learning personal for all.

LPS brings together current research on Learner Factors to demonstrate:

  • How Cognition, Social and Emotional Learning, Student Biographical Background, and Content understanding are connected and influence each other;
  • The research-based strategies and features that help strengthen student learning; and
  • Tools and products that support the Learner Factors.

By understanding Learner Factors, educators and product designers can better develop and build the curriculum, products, and services necessary to meet the diverse needs of all students.
