Increasing Student Achievement with Adaptive Learning Technology

Findings from the Tech & Learning survey show that most educators use adaptive learning systems for intervention, most usage is grades 3 to 5, and that there is some confusion over what it means to be "adaptive."
Publish date:

Adaptive learning software automatically personalizes and customizes instruction based on ongoing assessment of student responses. This paper details the results of Tech & Learning's survey of more than 3,000 K-12 educators and technology pros about how they use this emerging technology to design and implement customized learning paths for their students.

Survey results reveal:

•How educators are using adaptive learning software
•What are its most important benefits
•What it means to be fully adaptive
•Challenges to implementation

Writing Wrongs: Boosting Literacy by Maximizing Content Fidelity

Technology is assumed to help students learn to read and write. However, with the array of differing devices and inconsistent, non-standardized digital materials across the school setting, technology can create utter confusion rather than deepen the understanding of reading and writing skills. We expect that when a student creates a document -- and a teacher, peer or parent reviews or edits the document -- content with all the feedback and marking will appear consistently from teacher to student, no matter what device each one uses. But nothing could be further from the truth. The integrity of documents -- or content fidelity -- is one of the most significant, yet seldom talked about, challenges for educators to manage. Here's how to manage it.
