One size does not fit all in education – Education Transformation shows us how technology can be used to accommodate individual’s needs rather than making each student force fit into the traditional classroom model which works for many but not for all. Like so many other modern conveniences, education can benefit from technological advancement, and only technology can provide personalized instruction affordably.
Education Transformation has never been needed more than today. It is the future of education and of our nation’s children.
