Personalised learning has been around for a while but now it’s gaining unprecedented momentum among educators. Its application in lower and higher education settings is based on the idea that each student should have access to learning resources that are most relevant to their specific needs, strengths, and goals.
Personalised learning can be practised at any age or grade level and at the pace of each student; it means helping students reach their own potential through strategies that match their interests and styles. Imagine a world in which every student receives the perfect education right when they need it. Personalised learning promises to take us there — and it can’t come soon enough.
For students, this means getting the right information understood, retained, and applied in ways that allow them to grow into informed decision-makers in their personal lives, both present and future.
