“What if you had the ability to have the materials available, but through pure electronics deliver them to the student and be able to monitor in real time what that student was doing well with and what they’re struggling with? The teacher could individualize the instruction because they’re essentially handed an understanding of that student on day one because the classroom itself has followed that student from entry in kindergarten.”
I suspect the question was rhetorical. But I don’t think it should be. I have a very negative reaction to terms like “pure electronics” “monitor in real time” “deliver materials”. That sounds like a factory of learning rather than the one-room schoolhouse.
Let’s hope IBM aims higher. They have the resources and smarts to come up with a more exciting vision for what personalized learning could look like.
