The Future of Teaching? Customized Classrooms

The Future of Teaching? Customized Classrooms | Things to Explore | Scoop.it

Most college courses are one-size-fits-all—a lecturer delivers the same information to everyone in the room, regardless of whether some students already know the material or others are utterly lost.
