Register Today: Learner Variability and Culturally Responsive Practices

A Webinar Hosted by AACTE and Digital Promise

Understanding learner variability helps disrupt the idea of a one-size-fits all approach and paves the way for more equitable teaching and learning, writes Jessica Jackson, director of professional learning for the Learner Variability Project at Digital Promise.

“The intersection of culturally responsive practice with the science of learner variability … also helps us understand why culturally responsive practices are necessary for reaching and embracing the whole learner,” Jackson explains.

Join AACTE and Digital Promise on November 10 at 1:00 p.m. ET to learn the benefits of culturally responsive practices. Attendees will gain access to best practices from case studies presented by three thought leaders, including the latest research and the importance of culturally responsive practices in teacher education and K-12 classrooms. Register now to attend on November 10.
