"A powerful tool to help
reach this goal is online learning technology, which offers students
the ability to learn in ways that match their intelligence types in the
places and at the pace they prefer. But with the shift to
student-centric learning, assessment--the art and science of testing
children to determine what they have learned--can and should change, as
OK. I'm good with that, in fact right on!
Then there is this: "When students learn through student-centered online technology, assessment and individualized assistance can be interactive and woven into the instruction rather than tacked on at the end of the process. Software makers can also use the feedback loop to learn how to improve their products for different kinds of learners."
Sure. You bet. Now I'm thinking though that I need to read the book - the article jumps back and forth between a corporate training example and how K-12 online assessment could change and that left me a bit confused. I also want to see if the book says anything about game-based learning because the feedback loop that they describe and the constancy and immediacy of feedback could have come from a game design textbook.
