American Radio Works "One Child at a Time: Custom Learning in the Digital Age"
(Rochester, NY) – Researchers have long known the best way to learn is with a personal tutor. But tutoring is expensive. Providing the benefits of tutoring to everyone hasn't been possible. Now, experts say technology creates new ways for schools to customize education for each student. One Child at a Time: Custom Learning in the Digital Age, airing Sunday, September 8, 2013 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD 91.5-2, documents the rise of so-called "personalized learning." It takes listeners to schools that are reinventing their approach to education, and explores how teaching and learning change when personalization replaces one-size-fits-all in the classroom.
