• Data Backpacks: Portable Records & Learner Profiles

    This article investigates the following questions: 

    * What if students instead came to each course or classroom with a digital backpack of data about their learning levels, preferences, motivations, and personal  accomplishments?
    * How would this improve each teacher’s  ability to tailor learning to meet the needs of individual students?
    * What if parents and students could easily access their child’s records to share the information with afterschool providers?
    * How would all of the personalization this affords add up to deeper learning and improved college and career readiness?
