NLabs = Equity + Excellence

Systemic change is needed to empower a thriving ecosystem to accelerate outcomes in learning with personalization

Navigator Labs (NLabs) is a learning research nonprofit organization that develops technology to personalize learning and has validated over 110 projects over the past 12 years. NLabs partners with the learning ecosystem to create the Navigated Learning Technology (NLT) – a “GPS for Learning”.

Nlabs + Gooru = Navigator

Why We Need NLabs

To establish equity and excellence in learning, we recognize that any meaningful solution will require changes to the way we think about learning and how we measure outcomes. This is a complex process. In order to effect real change, our strategy must:

  • Be designed for equity
  • Enable lifelong learning at scale
  • Uphold privacy and keep data secure
  • Provide total choice as to why, what, where, and how to learn
  • Be interoperable
  • Include all types of learning activities
  • Work in low-technology environments, and
  • Continually improve
Complexity of Challenges
Learners are failing

In trying to meet these needs, learning providers use many eLearning platforms, state standardized tests, team projects, after-school programs, and so many more. However, data from each of these tools only show pieces of the whole learner. Without aggregating data across tools and programs, learning providers cannot truly understand the whole learner. With a better understanding of our learners, we can:

  • Provide personalized instruction for each learner
  • Provide real-time actionable insights to stakeholders
  • Enable systemic change in learning

What We Have Built

Over the past several years, the NLabs has worked with pioneering districts, transdisciplinary researchers, content and tools innovators, and nonprofit organizations around the world, to develop and implement the Navigated Learning approach. Schools such as Lammersville Unified and Leadership Public Schools,  research partners at the University of Utah and Delaware University, and nonprofit organizations such as Gyan Prakash Foundation, and Green Shoots have worked with NLabs to ensure that NLT aligns with the practices, integrates science of learning, and is equitable.

In the process, we created Gooru Navigator, a set of applications for students, teachers, principals, parents, curriculum designers, and school administrators that leverage the Navigated Learning approach.
