Towards an Advanced Personalized Learning
Globally, the educational systems traditionally follow a one-size-fits-all approach to learning, with a single set of instructions provided identically to everybody in a given class, regardless of differences in aptitude or interest. Differences in age, cultural background, occupation, and level of motivation, are mostly ignored in the traditional teaching.
In Europe, as a melting pot of cultural diversity, a growing appreciation of individual preferences and aptitudes has led to more personalized learning approaches, in which the learning process is tailored to a student’s individual needs.
The research in neuroscience and artificial intelligence are providing new insights into the intricacies of neural processes underlying learning by further refining the individualized instruction.
Given the diversity of individual preferences, and the complexity of each human brain, developing methods that optimize learning is a major challenge for the engineers of the future.
