'Peter Greene explains the hoax at the heart of “personalized learning.” Personalized Learning is the alleged antidote-- an education model being sold, today,in which all students get on the same car of the same train and ride the same tracks to the same destination at the same time. Real personalized learning would tear up the tracks, park the train, offer every student a good pair of hiking shoes plus a map of the territory (probably in the form of an actual teacher), then let the student pick a destination and a path and manner of traveling. But techno-personalized learning keeps one train and one track and the “personalization” is that students get on at different station. Maybe they occasionally get to catch a helicopter that zips them ahead a couple of stops. But personalized? No.' You need a teacher's expertise for that, not a computer program!
