What is adaptive learning?

Adaptive learning is a technique that is used to provide personalized learning for students. When implemented in the right way, it enables educational institutions to provide efficient and customized course plans to each student individually. This technique often relies heavily on data and analytics-backed approaches towards the students. This is done by studying their academic, behavioral and other aspects that have a direct impact on their studies. 

This technique is also dynamic in nature. It helps educators adjust/modify their approach towards each student based on their performance  levels. Thus they would have live data to help students progress in their academics.

Why adaptive learning is the future of education?

Predictive analytics: This is one effective technique which is now being used in every field to effectively improve an individual’s performance. Be it a sportsperson or an employee at an IT firm, predictive analytics is now used to improve all aspects of an individual. According to the experts, the use of predictive analytics is also expected to increase significantly in future. What makes adaptive learning a must-have offering for educational institutions in the future is that it is often combined with predictive analytics, making it an incredibly empowering tool to improve the performance levels of students. 

It’s research-backed. It should also be noted that adaptive learning is no more just a theoretical concept. According to research cited by Forbes Insights, students who receive personalized, one-on-one tutoring from human teachers outscore their peers on final exams”. And as we know, 1:1 tutoring is essentially the core of this method of teaching.  

Suitable for all types of learners. We now know that the attention span of students is getting shorter and shorter in this digital age. Adaptive learning is said to be ideal for students in this regard. In fact, when backed by advanced AI, it can provide customized education plans for students who suffer from learning difficulties like dyslexia, ADHD, and more. 

Implementation of adaptive learning

Adaptive learning, as a concept, looks to be a perfect technique to take education forward. But its effectiveness strongly depends on how efficiently it uses technology to its advantage. There are four essential technologies which educational institutions have to use to utilize the full potential of adaptive learning. The four technologies include artificial intelligence, analytics (preferably behavioral and predictive analytics), learning management system (LMS) and student information system (SIS). While AI and analytics help with implementation, student management solutions like SIS and LMS help in the seamless execution of it.
