Personalized Learning Without People – An Education Scam from the 1980s Returns

Sometimes it seems that education policy is nothing but a series of scams and frauds that becomes untenable in one generation only to pop up again 10 or 20 years laterwith a new name.
Take Personalized Learning, the latest digital product from the ed-tech industry to invade your local public school.
It’s cutting edge stuff.
Except that it isn’t.
It’s just the same old correspondence school nonsense of the 1980s thrown onto an iPad or a laptop.
It was crap back then, and it’s crap today.
But it sounds nice.
Personalized Learning.
I like that.
