The kids at MySpace and Facebook are creating software that will personalise learning.
Well, they are creating personalized online ads for their members, according to a New York Times story. So if you say you like sailboats, you'll get an ad from a sailboat company. And I'm hoping if you say "I'm married and happy" they won't spam me with single dating service ads.
The implication for education? Using the same software technology, teachers will be able to personalise learning for each of their students. It's a huge breakthrough for education. Nice going guys.
