Pearson’s Efficacy document has a chapter called ‘A New Era of Learning Efficacy on a Planet of Smarter Systems’ by Jon Iwata. It’s basically a paean of praise to the potential of big data. I threw the text into a word cloud program to see what would come up. And what we get is a handy little guide for anyone who wants to bluff their way in a discussion about adaptive learning. Alternatively, you could use it for buzz word bingo.
Some of the words you won’t be needing at all are ‘teach’, ‘teachers’, ‘classrooms’ or ‘lessons’. Sorry about the blur in the image: it’s my laptop having an emotional response.
