We are all born the same, needing food, love and care, but once we start to assimilate knowledge, each of us starts to show our uniqueness. There are no two babies to walk at the exact same age, or speak the exact same words. We all develop skills and process knowledge in a very personal and different way. That’s why I think that the learning process should be tailored to each individual, according to their needs and capabilities.
It would be great if this could be implemented starting with pre-school. We would look a lot different as grown-up individuals if we would all follow unique paths of learning.
Maybe someday this will be possible, and everyone will be able to reach their full potential. But in the meantime what can we do for the “cookie-cutter” generation? I have two words for you: adaptive learning.
