Just Enough, Just In Time, Just For Me: The Basics Of Adaptive Learning
Traditional education assumes that students by and large all learn in the same way: Start from Problem A and work on through to Problem Z. Bogged down on Problem D, a student will likely fail a quiz and scramble to catch up.
Adaptive learning technologies work from the premise that there are other, more personalized ways of acquiring knowledge. Essentially, adaptive learning proposes that technology can be leveraged to mold the learning experience to individual students’ needs and learning styles. This style of teaching “tailors the educational process to the strengths and weaknesses of individual students,” according to education trends sites.
