67 Influential Educators Changing the Way We Learn in 2015 At one point in your life — if you are lucky — an inspiring leader will change the way you see the world. All of the educators on this list have done that, in various ways, for students, teachers, and lifelong learners across the globe. They’ve created cutting-edge tools to increase access to learning; built new schooling models from the ground up; anticipated the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century; and inspired other teachers to give the best of themselves in the classroom. In a wide range of ways, these educators are innovating the ways we learn. Empowering Educators Means Decoding Adaptive Learning When we published “Disrupting Class” in 2008, we didn’t use the phrase “adaptive learning” once in the book. Just eight years later, it’s nearly impossible to imagine writing a book about educational technology and neglecting the term. With the rapid growth of blended learning and technology more generally in schools, asking if educational software is capable of adapting to students’ needs is commonplace. Teachers are increasingly attempting to reach each of their students who have distinct learning needs, at different times, with the right learning experience at the right time. Having effective adaptive software turbocharges those efforts and can provide a realistic pathway to accomplish that goal. But a critical challenge, as this EdSurge report notes correctly, is to decipher just what that phrase means.
