Navigator locates each learner, maps a personalized route for mastery, and gives reroute suggestions based on performance until each learner reaches their destination. Navigator is inclusive and flexible by design; it provides a full spectrum of learning activities and resources to meet the needs of each learner at every competency. Instructors are integral in the learning process and can implement Navigator based on the best practices and norms of their learning environments and needs of their learners. Navigator empowers learners by giving them agency in their own journeys, allowing them to track their strengths and struggles while supporting individual growth towards mastery.
Navigator is a learning data backbone that provides real-time information to all stakeholders in order to accelerate outcomes for all learners and enables a closed-loop research and practice cycle. Every collaborator in the learning ecosystem is supported by Navigator’s real-time data and transparency to promote self-regulation and systemic change.
Navigator integrates data dynamically and in real-time to curate personalized learning activities and supports. As a result, learners can track their progress, instructors can monitor and make suggestions, and administrators can view progress at the individual, class, district, regional, state, and national levels. Additionally, researchers can access anonymized data to perform their own queries and analyses, while content providers can monitor the efficacy of their materials and practices. As metrics and findings are shared, innovation can occur at all levels to accelerate learning outcomes.
Inclusive by Design
We designed Navigator to work for all learners, regardless of the skills they possess or the challenges they face. It also works in all environments, from remote areas with limited technology and connectivity to device- and broadband-rich environments. Navigator works across learning disciplines from pre-K to professionals and in all languages. These capabilities, along with Navigator’s full spectrum of activities and resources, promote learning across skill levels, disciplines, and geographies.
Tools for the Whole Learning Ecosystem
Built in collaboration with Lab partners in K-12 and other disciplines, and validated by researchers in the science of learning, Navigator is an Intergrated learning exchange that enables all stakeholders in the ecosystem to interact and accelerate learning outcomes.
Navigator for Learners
Guides learners on a personalized path from any starting point to any learning goal.
Navigator as an Integrated Learning Exchange (NILE)
At Gooru, we have cultivated an Integrated Learning Exchange. Navigator, an open-source technology, is the foundation of this exchange. Every collaborator in the community is empowered to focus on solving their particular educational challenges, and as a community, we pool solutions we develop into the open-source Navigator platform. This way each of us benefits from everyone in the community and we can rapidly accelerate innovation and learning outcomes for all.
