Such a large technology investment is largely inaccessible to K-12 schools and universities. Educators interested in deploying technology in support of personalized learning can turn to Classroom Response Systems. For a small fraction of the price, schools can deploy individualized, adaptive learning models. With real-time polling, surveying, and data feedback loops, teachers can implement personalized learning programs with the use of keypad clickers, tablets and/or smartphone devices.

For math educators, it’s rare that every student comes into the classroom equally prepared. With low success rates in introductory math courses, learning retention is an uphill battle for math instructors. According to new research blended and adaptive learning methods that incorporate interactive media into classroom lessons, classroom flipping and other techniques result in high levels of student success. Using classroom response technology educators can deliver formative assessments and adaptive, personalized learning exercises.
