Cartoon images with speech bubbles saying ME

In the March 2018 edition of my “In Real Life” column in Learning Solutions Magazine, I discuss an often-forgotten side of the personalized learning story: the person.

I’m extremely excited and acutely concerned that the industry is finally talking about personalized learning. My experience tells me that personalized and adaptive learning can be a game changer for L&D and the value it brings to the business. We just need to avoid the distractions, see through the marketing, and keep our focus on the “person” in personalization. Then, the data, technology, and content can help us finally balance the needs of the individual with the scale and pace of a modern organization.
