It seems that personalized learning has been gaining a lot of attention. The attitudes toward this idea is really divided. Some think this is a promising future; but others think it's expensive and has little effect. We even had seminar speakers who were strongly against this very idea.
is a research report from RAND Corporation, one of the most important think tanks in the country. Despite having "Corporation" in its name, it is a nonprofit institution. The research found that personalized learning is effective across all schools in their study. It is even more effective in lower achieving students.
The strong interaction is really interesting. Should we leverage the idea of personalized learning to close the achievement gap?
