Six Insights on Adaptive Learning Technology in Education

Published November 8, 2016

A look at McGraw-Hill's unique perspective on the theory, design, and application of adaptive learning technology.

Adaptive technology has become a central component in the design and development of modern educational tools and content. At McGraw-Hill, we apply our deep knowledge of learning science to maximize the ability of our digital solutions to improve learning outcomes.

e-Literate's Michael Feldstein recently visited our digital research and development headquarters in Boston to find out what makes our approach to adaptive learning so unique. In a new six-part video series for e-Literate TV, he discusses different aspects and applications of adaptive learning with our Chief Digital Officer Stephen Laster, VP of Research and Development Alfred Essa, and VP of Customer Success Matt Haldeman.

In these video clips we explore key insights about the role, value, and impact of adaptive learning technology in education today.

Adaptive learning tools can boost engagement and strengthen the teacher-to-student connection.

Adaptive learning technology can transform the role and impact of online homework.

Adaptive learning gives educators insights and efficiencies to enhance the teaching experience, but it will never replace teachers.

The design of adaptive learning products should be informed by both the data science and human art of teaching.

Ongoing research and collaboration in learning and brain science is needed to maximize the full potential of adaptive learning.

Adaptive learning can change the way educational content is authored – not just how it’s consumed in classrooms.
