Designing Adaptive and Personalized Learning Environments provides a theoretically-based yet practical guide to systematic design processes for learning environments that provide automatic customization of learning and instruction. The book consists of four main sections: In "Introduction and Overview," the concepts of adaptivity and personalization are introduced and explored in detail. In "Theoretical Perspectives with Example Applications," various theoretical concepts underlying adaptive and personalized learning are discussed, including cognitive profiling, content-based adaptivity, exploration-based adaptivity, and mobile and ubiquitous settings. In "Practical Perspectives with Example Applications," the implementation process for adaptive and personalized learning environments is described, followed by application in various contexts. In "Validation and Future Trends," various evaluation techniques for validating the efficiency and efficacy of adaptive and personalized learning systems are discussed. This final section concludes with a discussion of emerging trends in adaptive and personalized learning research. Based on cutting-edge research, Designing Adaptive and Personalized Learning Environments is appropriate as a primary textbook for both undergraduate and graduate courses focused on the design of learning systems, and as a secondary textbook for a variety of courses in programs such as educational technology, instructional design, learning sciences, digital literacy, computer based systems, and STEM content fields.

Here's a comprehensive look at how an integrated curriculum can work for your school or district. Using what she calls a new "Story Model," the author helps you make sense of the changes involved in integrating your school's curriculum. She gives you the tools you need to create a curriculum that takes into account the complexity of today's world and how all knowledge is interrelated. Your students will benefit from integrated curriculum by: Developing a higher level of thinking Transferring their learning to the real world Acquiring the skills they need to become lifelong learners This book helps answer these crucial questions about learning in your school or district: 1. What is worth knowing? 2. How can we know when a student knows it? 3. How do students learn best and what does this mean to teaching? Once you've answered these questions, you'll have a better idea of what curriculum changes you need to make. Drake shows you how (and when) to integrate your curriculum. She offers you detailed descriptions of several different, workable approaches. The information she gives you is applicable for district use as well as for individual schools or departments. Designed for school leaders, curriculum developers, and curriculum supervisors, this book brings integrated curriculum into sharp focus and helps educators find a curriculum model that can work for their school's particular needs.
