The mainstream in education has lots of limits when it comes to enhancing students’ learning ability and unwrapping their talents. Learning theories such as Dr. Howard Gardner’s theory on multiple intelligence and many others have shown that the learning process from one individual to another one is rarely similar. Learning abilities within a group of people vary a lot. It is therefore not realistic to believe that all students will reach their full intellectual potential through the mainstream in education. The challenge is to provide students with appropriate learning materials that would enable them to thoroughly explore their potential and discover their talents and passion. The use of personalized and adaptive learning technologies is providing very good and effective results in this regard. Schools nowadays have access to a plethora of educative platforms that help the students to develop their skills according to their level. The adaptive feature of these platforms is an asset that maintains students’ engagement and motivation. These technology tools that use data analytics to customize a learning process that suits each students’ skills and level of ability are really effective. They produce better learning outcomes than the mainstream of education. I too believe that technology-assisted personalized and adaptive learning will become the reality for the students of students in the near future.
