Leveraging Intelligent Adaptive Learning to Personalize Education: A Special White Paper Based upon the Speak Up 2011 National Findings
Project Tomorrow
Each year, Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit organization, facilitates the Speak Up National Research Project and, as part of this initiative, tracks the growing student, educator and parent interest in digital learning, and how the nation's schools and districts are addressing that interest with innovative ways to use technology in and out of the classroom. In this special white paper based upon the Speak Up 2011 national findings, Project Tomorrow has partnered with DreamBox Learning to explore a new concept in the use of technology to personalize learning. Through the analysis of the national Speak Up findings from 416,758 K-12 students, parents, teachers and administrators, it is the goal with this new white paper to better understand the interest in adaptive learning and to examine the next steps for greater adoption of this new technology in the classroom. Thus, the key questions for this analysis are as follows: (1) Why is this the right time for greater interest in intelligent adaptive learning?; (2) What is the value proposition for adaptive learning?; and (3) Are teachers ready for this? What do they need to be able to leverage these new tools effectively in the classroom? (Contains 4 tables and 2 charts.)
