How Technology Can Automatically Differentiate Instruction | Knewton Blog

How Technology Can Automatically Differentiate Instruction | Knewton Blog | Edtech | Scoop.it

Teachers for decades have understood the importance of “differentiated instruction” — the process of tailoring instruction to meet individual learners’ needs. This framework or philosophy is nothing new. What is new is technology’s capacity to produce truly differentiated instruction.

 

In this video, members of the Knewton academics team explain how Knewton recommendations steer students along personalized paths towards ultimate learning objectives based on both what they know and how they learn.

Rebooting "Learning Styles" | Knewton Blog

Rebooting "Learning Styles" | Knewton Blog | Edtech | Scoop.it

What “learning styles” are and whether they exist is a longstanding debate in the education world. Some educational researchers argue there are no distinct learning styles. Recently, a chorus has been growing who insist this is a proven fact.

 

To me, it’s pretty obvious that different learning styles exist — that is, that different ways of learning certain concepts are more or less productive for certain students. But until now, we’ve simply lacked the tools to measure them properly.

Knewton 's insight:

CEO Jose Ferreira reframes the debate on learning styles.

Vastly improved technology and increased student drop out rates have set the stage for education's Internet moment. Get the full story in this beautiful infographic.
Knewton 's insight:

In Knewton CEO Jose Ferreira’s blog post, Is Edtech in a Bubble? he describes the enormous ramifications of these developments:

 

“The shifting of education from analogue to digital is a one-time event in the history of the human race. At scale, it may have as big an effect on the world as indoor plumbing or electricity. The consequence of nearly every human being receiving as much education as she wants and her ability permits will likely transform the quality of life and global GDP within one generation. Massive pools of human talent will be unlocked. Better-educated people will raise better-educated kids. How many more great minds – future Einsteins, Curies, Da Vincis, Pasteurs, Martin Luther Kings and McCartneys – will the world produce when we can quadruple the number of high school graduates?”

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, October 22, 2013 8:07 AM

This article lays out a comprehensive plan for school who want to implement technology.  Many schools just use the technology without knowing how to make it an effective teaching tool.  This can help put an end to that, and the blogger opens up the forum for anyone else to include their feedback about what works, what doesn't, what he missed, etc.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, October 22, 2013 8:53 AM

Consistency, adaptability, portability, vertical- alignment, cultural relevance or adaptibility, credibility, ease of use,and accountibility! These for me are the nine important things that a school should consider when creating a Technology Plan! Thanks so much for the article, I teach in a progressive school which believes in having a technology plan for almost everything including attendance, lesson plans, performance trackers, remedial trackers....you name it!
