Personalized Learning Benefits and Top 7 Trends

Did you ever wish that what you learned in school could connect directly with your interests, passions, strengths and with what you'll do after you leave school? Wish you could learn in your own way and at the pace that's most comfortable for you?

If so, then personalized learning answers those questions and more.

What Personalized Learning is and What the Benefits Are

In short, personalized learning is both the education of today and the future. It is learner-centered and custom tailored to each individual student. The educational community world-wide is seeing the enormous benefits in personalized learning for every student, and new technologies make it possible for teachers to spend more time with each student individually. Teachers are able to guide and mentor students in areas that they are most passionate about, and no longer need to set up classrooms and offer instruction in a one-size-fits-all fashion.

Long gone are the days when teaching takes place with the teacher delivering content at the front of the classroom to passive recipients.

    Personalized learning is what will radically change education from the elementary level to the college level. It’s about time that educators respected the needs of students. If they are recognized as having the ability to learn by themselves, they will learn and learn well. I have been learning on my own for years, because I have become dissatisfied with the methods used to deliver educational content to students and because it is so time consuming to be in a class full of disruptions. When I learn on my own I can create the right environment that allows me to learn at my pace and gives me the opportunity to focus in on the things I know I need to learn.
