A lot of people like you might not be familiar with this term. Personalized learning is a divergent variety of education-related initiatives, learning knowledge and skills and study related plans and schedules which help in better reception from students. It is becoming popular; this is because utilizing technology in the class to teach the students at their own pace is of great benefits.
Personalized learning has changed the landscape of teaching, and this is just the beginning. There are many schools which don’t have a number of teachers but these automatons which teach students. The world has changed, we are in the Internet age where almost nothing is impossible so why not change the way of teaching? Nowadays students understand studies better on a tablet or smartphone rather than a blackboard. So why not welcome this change!
Check these points below to understand Personalized learning in better way and decide whether you are going to send your children for Personalized learning or not:
- Attractive to students
Personalized learning is attractive to students and why shouldn’t it be! Even today a 5-year-old kid knows how to handle your smartphone better than you do. This is what interests the young generation. Technology has reached Mars, and this is just classroom learning.
This also gives the opportunity to students to explore more facts than, that are blatantly given out to them by their teachers. They can seek out more help online. Children understand best at their own sweet pace. Who wouldn’t? Some might get it on their first try while it may take the tenth try for someone.
- Teacher’s sidelined?
With the introduction of automated learning where will the teachers go now? Will they lose their jobs? Will anyone become a teacher again? Well, these are some questions that crossed my head the first time I heard about this concept. But the more I thought about it some things became clearer to me.
No, the teachers are not going to be sidelined. Yes, robots and stuff are cool, but a teacher is a person you cannot replace. The teachers now can get a more relaxed job as a guide or an assistant rather than being just a ‘teacher’. In fact, Personalized Learning helps both a student and a teacher to learn, understand and develop a better relationship with each other.
Can Personalized Learning be the future of education?
There have been innumerable arguments and debates over this topic for a few years now without a decisive conclusion. In my opinion, Yes it can be, no, it will be the future of education. After all, it’s about shaping a future.
Students will be able to learn better if they know what to learn and how to learn it. If you want to know “How to help your children to enhance their learning skills?
