Good teachers work to create personalized experiences for students that motivate them and target their specific learning needs. But teachers can’t do it alone. Digital content and tools that support personalized learning create new kinds of student data that help teachers tailor instruction specifically to students’ needs and interests, and get rapid insight into their learning progress. And as we celebrate Digital Learning Day, what better time to highlight the need for more effective digital instructional tools?
There’s no replacement for the powerful connection between teacher and student, but digital instructional tools provide teachers with valuable information and resources to meet individual needs and track student progress. Teachers are constantly trying to analyze how their students are doing based on many data sources, and new tools that organize data well and provide actionable insights into what individual students need are becoming available.
