The World Is My School: Welcome to the Era of Personalized Learning | World Future Society

Excellent article and vision of a possible direction for personalized learning. This intersects nicely with the topic of curation. With the simple act of questioning, and taking the time for reflection and  seeking answers to the questions, powerful and personalized learning can be the end result.

 

Learn This! SOCRAIT Questions for “The World Is My School”

Author Maria H. Andersen offers the following questions as sample Socratic-learning prompts for readers of this article:

• What technologies are we likely to see in personalized learning systems on the 20–50 year horizon?

• What arguments are made for the likelihood that we can “find” the free time to engage in a personal learning system?

• Why are Socratic questions and spaced repetition algorithms (SRA) an elegant solution to the personalized learning problem?

• How are responses evaluated in the proposed SOCRAIT system?

• What evidence do we have that people will be willing to put in the cognitive energy to create a learning layer on the Web?
