The problem with high-tech ‘personalized’ learning tools

The problem with high-tech ‘personalized’ learning tools | startups | Scoop.it

I couldn’t help feeling a bit disturbed at SXSWedu last week, hearing tech vendors and venture capitalists use the term “personalized learning” as though it was 1) new (what, exactly, do these people think has been going on in human brains for millennia??) and 2) a ground-breaking thing that could only be enabled through their proprietary technology.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, March 25, 2013 4:02 AM

I have to say I agree with so much of this. I really like this quote "True personalized learning comes from people knowing each other; man-made interventions can facilitate, but not fully replace, the cognitive or emotional value of meaningful in-person interaction."

 

I think we need to concentrate more on connecting people to each other to learn, not connecting them to materials.

Lydia Gracia's curator insight, March 25, 2013 5:09 AM

Thanks for this post! I think we have to think about learning DEpersonalisation... it occurs just now!
