Personnalisation standard

logoCet oxymoron (deux termes opposés en sens) recouvre pourtant une réalité : l’idée de personnalisation de l’éducation s’étend à tous les niveaux et devient de ce fait un standard reconnaissable.  La personnalisation à grande échelle, dans son fonctionnement pratique géré par des algorithmes ou par une intelligence artificielle, suppose l’acquisition de données et leur traitement selon des valeurs ou des protocoles établis, ce qui revient à orienter selon des standards et à «personnaliser» systématiquement. L’expression est donc appropriée. Plus...

Personal Learning

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Personal Learning
An article that is winning wide praise, this item asserts that "The key to learning is not the medium nor the message, it is the quality of the dialog with your peers that really matters." The author also echos a growing dissatisfaction with the usual way of doing things. "The traditional practice of determining information needs and competency gaps seems more and more a hollow exercise." Unfortunately brief, and the sketch of some basic principles needs much more filling out. More...

Updated Report Version 3: Personalization vs. Differentiation vs. Individualization

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Updated Report Version 3: Personalization vs. Differentiation vs. Individualization
Barbara Bray, Personalize Learning, 2014/10/09
We're getting into the leading edge of a terminological whirlwind as technology increasingly offers us ways to personalize, I mean individualize, um, whatever, education. Now when I write about 'personal learning' I don't mean any of these things, though there is some overlap in concept. More...

The History of "Personalization" and Teaching Machines

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The History of "Personalization" and Teaching Machines
Audrey Watters, Hack Education, Jul 15, 2014
I'm going through my aggregator to find items I missed while writing and delivering three presentations in four days, and this one from Audrey Watters resonates. We need to be careful. As I pointed out in my own talk, there is a big difference between 'personal' (as in 'personal learning environments') and 'personalized' (as in 'personalized learning'). More...

Responses to Personalization and Monopolies

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Responses to Personalization and Monopolies
David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Jul 25, 2014
I'm not enthusiastic about David Wiley's definition of personalization (" personalization comes down to being interesting") but I think he shares a great example of personalization done wrong: " Imagine if your only option for watching movies was to login to Netflix and watch the movies it recommended to you, in the order it recommend them. Who wants that? Who would pay for that?" Exactly. More...

Balancing Personalization

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Balancing Personalization
This argument is as old as the hills: "customized personalization-- smart, self-adjusting, filtered system--limits discovery." The idea is that if you get only the content you want, you will never get anything new. More...
