What Faculty Should Know About Adaptive Learning - M Feldstein | Linking Literacy, Research, and Practice | Scoop.it

I was honored to be asked by the American Federation of Teachers to write an article on what their membership should know about adaptive learning technologies....


The phrase “adaptive learning” is an umbrella term that applies to an incredibly broad range of technologies and techniques with very different educational applications. The common thread is that they all involve software that observes some aspect of student performance and adjusts what it presents to each student based on those observations. In other words, all adaptive software tries to mimic some aspect of what a good teacher does, given that every student has individual needs.
