The third in series of four issue papers from Pearson highlights the importance of personalized learning as powerful force in future of education. This paper "takes stock of developments and challenges in this new century and makes a case for personalized learning as a powerful driver in 21st century teaching and life-long learning. In this view, educational technologies including formative assessments linked to instruction, learning management systems, longitudinal data systems, flexible and adaptive content delivery, interoperability standards, teachers, professional development, and institutions themselves must essentially serve the learner in a more personalized way if we are to realize our greatest aspirations."
