This article argues that today’s gold standard for identifying what works, the randomized controlled trial, poorly serves each and any individual learner. Elements of this argument provide grounds for proposed remedies in cases where software can log extensive data about the operations that each learner applies to learning and about each bit of information to which a learner applies those operations.

This article reviews recent advances in research by members of the Learning Environments Across Disciplines partnership on the design of adaptive technology-rich learning environments as cognitive, metacognitive, and affective tools. In particular, we examine the use of convergent methodologies and how the design guidelines of the learning environments are grounded in instructional theories and empirical evidence.

Pedagogical agents are computerized talking heads or avatars that help students learn by performing actions and holding conversations with the students in natural language. This paper explores several designs of trialogues (two agents interacting with a human student) that have been productively implemented for particular students, subject matters, and depths of learning.

This article discusses how high quality software can both promote children’s math learning and also provide analytic tools for studying its development over time. Macrogenetic research on digital learning can contribute to the further development of effective math education software, shed light on children’s math learning, and also largely eliminate the need for high-stakes testing and traditional achievement tests.
