7 Things You Should Know About Personalized Learning - Michael Feldstein, Phil Hill, Thomas Cavanagh, EDUCAUSE
Personalized learning provides a unique, highly focused learning path for each student. Individual attention from instructors isn’t feasible in traditional educational models with large numbers of students, and personalized learning is intended to use IT systems and tools to tailor learning experiences based on student strengths, weaknesses, and pace of learning. Technologies including analytics, adaptive learning, digital courseware, and others underlie personalized learning, which builds a “profile” of each student and makes continual adjustments to learning paths based on student performance. It also provides information to help instructors better target their teaching to individual students. http://www.educause.edu/library/resources/7-things-you-should-know-about-personalized-learning?
