Don’t Be Lame, Personalize Learning Using Online Technologies

by Tom Vander ArkBlogger, GettingSmart.com

Together, six technology trends are making it easier for individuals to learn and easier for teachers to create great schools.

1.Personalization: adaptive tools that quickly diagnose needs and online systems that power anywhere anytime learning.

2.Profiles: comprehensive records of learner progress that help teachers and algorithms better meet student needs.

3.Playlists: a sequence of tailored learning experiences that customizes learning for every student (like iTunes Genius does for music).

4.iPad: cheap mobile devices are powering an explosion of learning apps

5.Progress: it’s becoming more common for students to progress to the next unit or grade after they show what they know (see CompetencyWorks.org for more)

6.Platforms: there are lots of efforts to build powerful next generation platforms that combine content, social learning, profiles, assessments, and services.
