How to Deliver on the Promise of Improved Learning Outcomes Through Technology

"Adaptive learning" or "personalized learning" are hot topics in Education and for good reason with the allure of transforming teacher effectiveness and student outcomes. However, they are terms often overused, as is the notion that digital content or one-to-one devices alone will ensure success in school and out into the workplace.
