Personal and Personalized Learning

Posted on 17 February 2016 by jrobes

Ich glaube, besser kann man den Unterschied nicht erklären: “Personalized learning is like being served at a restaurant. Someone else selects the food and prepares it. There is some customization - you can tell the waiter how you want your meat cooked - but essentially everyone at the restaurant gets the same experience.

Personal learning is like shopping at a grocery store. You need to assemble the ingredients yourself and create your own meals. It’s harder, but it’s a lot cheaper, and you can have an endless variety of meals. Sure, you might not get the best meals possible, but you control the experience, and you control the outcome. …

Ultimately, if people are to become effective learners, they need to be able to learn on their own. They need to be able to find the resources they need, assemble their own curriculum, and forge their own learning path. They will not be able to rely on education providers, because their needs are too many and too varied.”
