Case Studies & Published Research

While the Lea(R)n team is made up of educators, researchers and technologists, we understand that what’s often most helpful in identifying where you are, where you want to go and how to get there is to understand challenges and solutions from peers in other schools and districts. Product companies claim their tools, programs and systems can do all kinds of things, which is part of why we developed LearnPlatform: to separate the promises from the practice. Check out the research that undergirds the platform, ongoing analysis projects and case studies of real solutions working to make results matter in learning organizations across the country.
