What if your education was personalized like your Netflix queue? What if the lessons offered in the classroom were individually created and refined on a minute-by-minute basis so they have the maximum amount of usefulness?
While teachers offer personalized learning every single day, technology has often lagged behind. Too often do we see a classroom of devices used the exact same way. It would go something like this:
“okay class, let’s all turn on our iPads and open the Evernote app. Now everyone tap here. Now let’s all tap here…”
You get the idea. Personalized learning is a longstanding benefit of in-person education. But now that technology plays such a big role, what kind of lessons are we actually putting in front of students? Are they more generic than we think? A look at this handy infographic from CollegeStats.org spells out exactly what ‘big data’ could and will most likely do to education.
Do any of the tidbits of info jump out at you?
