Abstract: Funders, policymakers, and designers are increasingly interested in spreading new instructional approaches to larger numbers of learners in school and non-school contexts. This paper presents a conceptual framework for research on spread and scale in a digital age that accounts for the interactions among environments, organizations, individuals, and educational innovations. Most existing scholarship on scale-up comes from the pre-digital age. Digital technologies often reimagine how learning occurs, requiring new capacities for adults who use them with children and new pathways for scale-up. Drawing on interviews, case studies, and a comprehensive literature review on scale in education and other fields, the framework provides guidance for designers who seek to spread and scale digital learning innovations and for researchers who seek to study these processes.
