In exploring topics for an EdTech assignment to examine an emerging or future technology and its potential applications in teaching and training, Group 2 selected a technology that has evolved from the dream of a 1950s psychologist into a leading contender for the most important ‘disruptor’ in education of the future. Adaptive Learning – an educational method that uses computers and hand held devices to orchestrate resources according to the unique needs of each learner – is explored, demonstrated, and analyzed in the following presentation by examining its origins, evolution, current landscape, and future trends.
