Adaptive Educational Technologies: Tools for Learning and for Learning about Learning
Natriello, Gary, Ed.
National Academy of Education
With the spread of adaptive technologies that customize the user experience in response to individual users, it is not surprising that such experiences are increasingly found in educational settings or in tools to facilitate learning. The National Academy of Education commissioned a background paper and held two meetings of scholars, policy makers, and developers of adaptive educational technologies to consider the implications of such adaptive systems for education research and education researchers. This report highlights the issues discussed in those proceedings. The following are appended: (1) Workshop Agenda and Participants; and (2) Summit Agenda and Participants.
