We are in the midst of a revolution in K–12 education, represented by the shift to digital, highly personalized learning. Students, educators, parents, and policymakers are finding compelling ways to use multiple modalities and technologies to enrich learning and personalize instruction.
The use of technology-powered blended learning holds great promise as a cost-effective and egalitarian means to help greater numbers of young people accelerate their learning, graduate, and meet challenges in a competitive world.
The key to making personalized learning work for the greatest number of students is adaptive digital environments and experiences, particularly Intelligent Adaptive Learning™ with its ability to precisely adjust to the individual learner. By recalibrating with every interaction to maintain appropriate challenges, learners stay in their optimal learning zone and are enabled to meet their full learning potential. This exciting advance in education has the potential to be the “equalizer” that provides greater access and opportunity for students in our society, regardless of their backgrounds or zip codes.
