Why is personalised learning important?

Education today has moved out of the classroom setup. That is to say, space is no longer a constraint when it comes to learning and education. With the onset of mobile and wireless technologies, classes are where the students are. While the geography of learning may have changed, one of the biggest demerits of a classroom set-up that still persists in our classes today is non-personalised learning or as one may say, the ‘one size fits all’ approach. The only way to tackle this issue is by leveraging technology to provide every student with personalised learning.

What is Personalised Learning?

This famous saying sums up personalised learning aptly – 

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Systems that take into account aspects like a student’s pace, learning styles, proficiency levels and capabilities, create the most engaging sessions. It makes it easy for students to remember their learnings for the long haul. Personalised learning effectively eliminates the need for rote-learning, as it enables students to develop conceptual clarity. One of the key elements in personalised learning is tracking students’ progress. It helps in  mapping a course of learning suitable to their individual needs. BYJU’S- The Learning App has been designed keeping personalised learning as one of the key features. Let’s take a look at how BYJU’S -The Learning App enables personalised learning to its each and every student:

Customized Learning Journey:

BYJU’S – The Learning App not only tracks your strong and weak areas but also enables you to re-learn chapters that need more attention. So if you stumble a little while learning a particular topic,  you will first be redirected to a detailed, conceptual explanation of the topic and once you have understood it clearly, it will move on to other topics.

Adaptive Questions:

Half the challenge during exams is to face tricky questions smartly. The best way to conquer this is by being exposed to a wide range of questions that test your conceptual understanding of a subject. With BYJU’S- The Learning App, not only do you learn from the questions asked, but the questions learn from you too! Our adaptive learning journeys are designed in a way that modifies the difficulty level based on your level of preparedness. It helps build your confidence in each stage along the way, ensuring you get the most of every chapter of the syllabus, leaving it up to you to take as much time you need to master a chapter.

Detailed Performance Statistics:

With BYJU’S – The Learning App, you have access to an extremely detailed report of your learning progress, with graphs and charts that help you understand where you are and how far you have to go. Your learning journey is mapped through performance statistics like the accuracy of your answers, your level of expertise on any topic, areas of improvement, speed of completion and more. Combined with the engaging and interactive questions, these ‘Knowledge Graphs’ can be a formidable tool in unlocking your maximum learning potential.

With the power of knowledge and technology in the palm of our hands, learning no longer has to be a monotonous method of memorising facts. With BYJU’S personalised learning approach, each student has the opportunity to learn as per their own individual needs.
