Personalized learning thrives in this technology-rich environment, but is insufficient on its own to revolutionize a student’s classroom experience. However, almost 25 years after Bloom’s research, the higher education community is slowly starting to move towards personalized learning.
What is personalized learning?
Personalized learning can be defined as prioritizing the needs of individual students when developing curricula and learning materials. Students work at their own pace, often independently of the teacher.
Technology may be used to allow students to access online materials, work through topics, find additional resources and to assess and monitor their progress. Students are encouraged to be active learners and teachers are encouraged to engage with students one to one or in small groups.
