In a blog post, Bill Gates explores personalized learning.

 

Not only do kids get to learn at their own pace, which gives them more confidence, but teachers at Summit get matched with students who they'll mentor for all four years. Instructors can use in-house software to see which of their dozen or so students has completed certain assignments and exams.

 

The end result is that kids don't have many opportunities to slip through the cracks. And by taking an active role in their education, they learn responsibility and self-reliance.

 

"I love that approach," Gates says. "When students get out in the world, they have to organize their own time, have goals, and realize what they’re behind on. It's fantastic to see them getting a head start on those skills in school."

Abby Fellows - Smith's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:26 AM

So much has happend so quickly to promote the use of iPads in the education system. I think that this app seems to be very user friendly and allows use without having to have an account with IXL. However, this article does not show me what this app can do that cannot be done in a regular classroom setting. Yes, the students can get trophies for the work they do. This however can be a problem for students who struggle as they will feel as though their effort is not being rewarded.
