Trends, Issues and Activities in Individualized Learning.
Weisgerber, Robert A.
In this companion paper to his earlier annotated bibliography of ERIC materials on individualized instruction, the author defines individualized learning as the tailoring of the educational process which takes into account the unique qualities and needs of each individual. He identifies and comments on general trends which seem to be emerging in individualized instruction at the elementary and secondary level, in teacher education programs, and in other education programs. A selective list of the equipment, materials, and pre-packaged systems available to implement an individualized program is provided, along with a review of the major features of several major national systems--PLAN (Program for Learning in Accordance with Needs), IPI (Individually Prescribed Instruction), I/D/E/A (Institute for Development of Educational Activities, Inc.), IMS (Individualized Mathematics System), and SCI (Student Centered Instruction). A selected list of publications, meetings, and sources of information about individualization is presented for those who wish to explore the concept in more depth. (JY)
