I’m still wandering through the world of big data and it’s use in adaptive learning. I ran across this twitter post that highlighted a blog post at ELTjam, a great blog for teaching English with an emphasis on using technology (check out my resources page). Here is the twitter post with a link to the blog post:
I found the post interesting because it introduced me to the idea of adaptive content, classroom, and curriculum as a new way to think about adaptive learning. I immediately connected with the following statement from the post, ” Upon completion of a given activity, the system directs the student to the next activity. That is not adaptive learning, but rather adaptive content; it is the content sequence (of “activities”) that adapts to the learner’s past performance.” It’s a fresh way to think of a hot topic in eLearning.
