Customized Learning is a technologically empowered, learner focused alternative. What if every day, every learner was met with customized learning experiences at precise developmental and achievement levels, was learning in the most effective learning style with content of interest, was challenged, was successful and left school eager to come back tomorrow? This is not only possible with today’s technologies it is inevitable. Industry has figured out how to mass customize products and services, education is poised for this leap.
