In a Few Short Years, Computers will Teach One-on-One Tailored Courses

In five years, classrooms will learn about you, and personalize coursework accordingly. It’s the end of the era of one-size-fits-all education, and the beginning of personalized learning.

We found this video via an IBM Research site devoted to education about its cognitive computing projects. It’s a promotional video, but the prediction — that computers will be smart enough to learn (and tailor to) an individual student’s need — is worth noting, pondering and discussing. This goes way beyond adaptive learning. Its technology that adapts to its users.
