SUSTAINABLE LEARNING FRAMEWORK
The Sustainable Learning Framework is grounded in established learning and change models, drawing on elements which have been empirically proven to improve outcomes. Thus, its elements are not new. What is new is the weaving and integration of these proven strategies into a new fabric, one that might be reliably used to accomplish critical objectives at scale.

Building Blocks are the Design Elements necessary to create productive learning spaces.
Discovery is the application of new algorithms that enhance the speed, scale, depth, distance, and complexity of work. Discovery leverages Digital Affordances, opportunities created by working online that amplify and enhance all aspects of the Sustainable Learning Framework.
