In today’s Sunday Times, Tina Rosenberg writes about School of One in Brooklyn: The New New Math. This article is worth a read to understand how new experiments in digital on-line math tutorship are trying to tweak the models of the recent path. In Parenting for Technology Futures I talk about cognitive tutors as tools hoping to customize learning for each and every individual student- but that these solutions can have system-level side effects that negatively impact every student. School of One also customizes future lessons student-by-student based on past performance. That’s a hallmark of nearly every successful system now. But it also provides teachers with access and visibility, to customize the decisions and trajectories with a human touch. I applaud that level of transparency; it is likely a step in the right direction.
