Bright Ideas for Individual Improvement
While this method of teaching may not work on a broad scale, with one teacher teaching a large class of studentspresenting one message in several different ways could take a large amount of time and students would either become either frustrated by their lack of understanding or bored by the repetition of lessons they have already learned. Modern technology can help to bridge the gap in understanding that occurs because of natural difference in learning style.
The GELC model for education, elaborated by Dr. C. Victor Bunderson, uses computers and technology to deliver a highly-customized lesson to each individual, based on that person’s learning preferences and learning style. In this model, the teacher’s role switches to one of coach and motivator as students come to the teacher for answers to their own individual questions and difficulties. Students of similar learning styles could also be grouped together to learn with like-minded individuals, thus increasing the pace of education for most students.
Ideally, learners receive instruction suited to their own:
1. Individual learning style
2. Academic progress,
3. and level of understanding.
The Edumetrics Institute wishes to see education reach these goals as we implement the latest in research and academic discoveries to shape the future.
