Abstract / Description of output

Children differ in their abilities, skills, and interests. To deal with these differences productively in education, in ways that maximize the learning and development of every child, the idea of ‘personalized learning’ has been gaining popularity. Personalized learning seeks to optimize the fit between instruction and learner1 (cf. person–environment fit2), for example, through implementing individualized, flexible learning schedules; matching students to difficulty levels of instruction according to their learning abilities (i.e., streaming or tracking3); and encouraging student choice in education.
