What is adaptive learning?
Who is adaptive learning for?
Adaptive learning is an innovative technique for providing personalized and effective education, by which computer technology is used. Adaptive learning systems use a data-driven approach to adjust the path and pace of learning, enabling personalized learning at scale. This innovative learning method can be aimed at both school-age students and employees who want to keep up-to-date in their companies.
What are the advantages of adaptive learning?
Adaptive learning has advantages for both the student and the teacher.
First of all, the advantages for the learner are:
- Motivation. This type of training or learning is designed to be adapted to the level and way of learning of the learner, therefore, they do not feel pressured and face challenges with enthusiasm and motivation.
- Adaptation to needs. The user gets a particular and focused attention on him. This is achieved thanks to the content, activities, etc. because they are adapted to his/her abilities. The aim is to facilitate the assimilation of the concepts.
- Quick process. As the learner is the center of learning, the system offers strategies to solve the exercises and challenges and could also include information on their progress, strengths, etc. The learner gets points or results of their learning jurney and so can evaluate how much they have learned.
- Improvement of digital competence. With adaptive learning, the learner works independently in the digital environment, therefore, they not only develop in what they are learning, but they are also getting used to contact with technologz. They familiarize with technology and adapt to new possibilities.
- Flexibility. Being online, the student can learn from wherever he wants and can choose the time for education. Learners also know exactly how much time they will have to invest in learning the given content.
In addition, here you will find some advantages for the supervisor:
- Efficacy and adaptation. As we have mentioned before, the contents and activities are adapted to the employee thanks to the fact that the system collects student data, these results are compared with the rest of the learner and the system itself is constantly updated. In this way, the supervisor will only have to attend to specific needs and can establish them to each individual.
- Useful and complete information. The supervisor receives the progress data of his employees in real time so he has time to react to the information and be able to support them.
- Saved time. The existence of self-correcting activities also means a great saving of time for the supervisor, so that he is able to invest more time in interaction with the employees.
- Personalization and organization. Adaptive learning systems constantly offer the supervisor advice and suggestions to organize the team, as the data is updated.
How is adaptive learning reinforced in e-learning?
With the expansion of e-learning in companies, this learning option is very reinforced, since the physical existence of the supervisor is not necessary. In this scenario, the manager could be nothing more than a mere support, while the employee is able to work by himself.
Independence of the learners helps the e-learning modality to become stronger, since it is what usually stops people from taking the step. We tend to resort a lot to the manager because we consider it essential, but new technologies have made it possible to fulfill certain tasks of the supervisor and increase the independence of the employees.
