HECHINGERREPORT | When you look closely at what people are saying about personalized learning, it becomes clear that people are using the term in very different ways.

The divergence in how people think about personalized learning became apparent to me a few years ago, when I was asked to give a keynote presentation at a conference.

I quickly found that the conference organizers were thinking about personalization very differently than I was. The presentations at the conference focused on new software systems designed to personalize the delivery of instruction to students.
