In the first of a series of Connected Learning Blog posts on the topic, he gathered insights from industry experts, including Tom Whitby, Tom Kenyon from NESTA and Brian Lewis from ISTE.
In this series, Kent seeks to answer two questions: What is preventing mainstream educators from taking personalized learning to the next level? How can our current obsession with personalized learning help us make schooling and education one and the same?
