5 steps to Re-gear your teaching and learning for today’s learner:

  1. Find out what learning material fits best with your learners’ needs <media types, total volume, bite sizes, electronic, traditional>
  2. Find out what your learners’ support needs are < family, professional, institutional, peer, community>
  3. Find out what sort of connectivity and face-to-face engagement opportunities your learners have. <working, youth, socio-economic, language, technology access>
  4. Consider accelerator and remedial programs <Personal pathways, formative assessment, checkpoints>
  5. Seek technology tools that satisfy your learner needs. <Do not compromise. If cost is the issue use a stepped program which will satisfy your learner needs in the end>
