Rapid Evidence Review: Technology-supported personalised learning
- Technology-supported personalised learning appears to offer significant promise to improve learning outcomes, including potentially ‘out-of-class’ and ‘out-of-school’ learning.
- The adaptive nature of technology-supported personalised learning to ‘teach at the right level’ is key as it enables students to learn at their own pace and according to their current proficiency.
- Technology-supported personalised learning may be most beneficial in closing educational gaps for lower attaining students, potentially including those returning to school after an absence.
- Any introduction of personalised learning technology should not be interpreted as decreasing the importance of the teacher, but rather enhancing it.
- Implications for cost and infrastructure are unclear, but using existing hardware solutions is likely to help to reduce costs and increase access
