Adaptive learning: The best approaches we've seen so far There is perhaps no hotter segment in ed tech right now than adaptive learning, which adjusts the learning experience based on a student's progress. It becomes more difficult if they're progressing well, and slows down if they need further instruction. The technology has even attracted funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which assembled a diverse coalition of colleges ranging from the University of Texas at Austin to the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. It isn't just colleges, either—adaptive learning is benefiting K-12, as well. With positive results coming in for many of the companies producing adaptive learning tools, the growth isn't likely to stop soon. Following its June acquisition of ALEKS Corporation, it was only a matter of time before McGraw-Hill Education debuted an adaptive learning platform of its own. Like Pearson, ed publishing giant Macmillan also formed a partnership with Knewton in May.

It’s a topic that’s had little attention from researchers and educators, but as learning continues to scale-up with online and open communities educators need to be paying attention, examining and addressing such interactions. ‘Angry’ from iStock “As Suler (2004) observes, people say and do things in cyberspace that they wouldn’t ordinarily say and do in the face-to-face world. When reading the paper “Would you ever say that to me in class?” Lack of civility in online forums within learning communities is manageable in small, closed online learning communities where an instructor is in control of a class of up to thirty, or even forty students.

24 Top Tools for Online Teaching What are your top tools for learning? The Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies collects responses to this question from learning professionals every year. The result is a list of “Top 100 Tools for Learning,” which runs the gamut from Adobe to Zite.

Stoodle eXe Cómo afecta el uso de las TIC a la estructura del aula y a los roles de alumnos y maestros - aulaPlaneta La omnipresencia de las Tecnologías de la Información y Comunicación (TIC) en muchas de las facetas de nuestras vidas ha cambiado, en muy poco tiempo, nuestra forma de entender el mundo, comunicarnos con los demás y, también, de educar y educarnos en la llamada sociedad de la información. La importancia del acceso a la información como sinónimo de progreso, la naturaleza global de nuestra sociedad que favorece el rápido intercambio de información gracias a ordenadores u otros dispositivos con conexión a Internet, o la aparición de redes colaborativas a distancia, son sólo algunas de las características de esta ya no tan nueva sociedad que la educación debe enseñar a comprender tanto a los alumnos como a los maestros que pretendan formarles.
