A 360° Experience on Learner Variability

The moment a teacher opens the door to their classroom at the beginning of a new school year, if they understand learner variability, they will see a design challenge, not a student problem. This session begins by defining learner variability and launching into an analysis of a 360° experience, Failure to Communicate, featuring middle school students who portray how their characters are unique learners. The film shows how, after coaching, one teacher taps the research to turn her class around.
