Deputy Director, Office of Educational Technology
US Department of Education
To make learning experiences available to a wide audience, we often overlook the unique needs of individual learners. As technology creates increasingly customized experiences in other parts of learner's lives (shopping, health care, and so on), learners will become less tolerant of learning experiences that don’t adjust to their needs.
Participants in this session will explore the power of using data to customize learning experiences and to tailor the learning environment to the needs and challenges of individual learners. You'll look at the data model that makes Amazon.com so successful, and see several examples of how you could apply this model to educational environments. Warning: This session will mock static, slideshow style online learning (AKA “nexters”).
In this session, you will learn:
- About approaches to creating tailored learning experiences
- About examples of data-driven learning models
- About the future of customized learning
