Navigator has been built, researched, and tested by a collaborative group of researchers, technologists, and educators who continually help improve and refine Navigator by usage. With strong foundations in the learning sciences, data science, and artificial intelligence, the Navigated Learning Collaborative continually builds on Navigator’s technology to assure learning outcomes for every learner. The Navigated Learning Collaborative reaches across disciplines and geography to bring together diverse stakeholders in the learning ecosystem - content providers, implementers, researchers, technologists, educators, funders, school administrators, and government officials.
Collaborators leverage Navigator in ways specific to their needs. They contribute content, develop or share competency models, provide feedback from their implementation, or leverage anonymized data to enhance the underlying science and advance Navigator for all users. The Navigated Learning Collaborative members share their usage data that is used to refine the Navigator in exchange for free, unlimited use.
Researchers, technologists, and lab schools incorporated the science of how individuals learn into the core technology behind Navigator. With Navigator’s ability to navigate learners to their destination and provide real-time data on learning outcomes at the individual, class, school, district, state, and national level, educators’ continuous feedback to make Navigator more effective. With grants from funders committed to the Navigated Learning Collaborative’s mission, we are able to engage the entire ecosystem to create systemic change.
