About Learnerati

Learnerati is a research driven educational practices company dedicated to creating more effective learning experiences for all students. We focus on the development of intellectual fluidity among students through the innovative matching of learning objectives to instructional processes that promote student reasoning and contextual awareness.

Our work involves helping educators restructure their approach to not only instruction but educational management. We strongly believe that learning is a personal process that most effectively occurs when information, cognition, and self-directed goals coalesce within a contextual setting. Due to this belief and a mounting body of modern research into learning, Learnerati actively incorporates the ongoing collection of data from within classrooms as the formative part of a larger feedback process.

This concept is at the heart of Learnerati. After all, we are a community of learners helping other learners to teach even more learners effectively.
