Over the past several decades, the student population in the United States has grown increasingly more diverse. More recently, research from the learning sciences has advanced our understanding of learner variability and the importance of grounding educational practice in the individual, rather than the fiction of an average student. Additionally, technological innovation has moved closer to realizing the promise of evidence-based personalization. A deep belief in the urgent need to address learning equity gaps drives us to ask: How might we improve the quality and precision of personalization in order to support the full diversity of learners in the new world of technology supported teaching and learning? And, how might we increase research use in the design, development, and improvement of education programs, products, and practices?
