Rapid Evidence Review: Technology-supported personalised learning

Key Findings

  1. Technology-supported personalised learning appears to offer significant promise to improve learning outcomes, including potentially ‘out-of-class’ and ‘out-of-school’ learning. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
  4. Any introduction of personalised learning technology should not be interpreted as decreasing the importance of the teacher, but rather enhancing it. 
  5. Implications for cost and infrastructure are unclear​, but using existing hardware solutions is likely to help to reduce costs and increase access
