School lessons can be either too slow, boring and
repetitive or too fast
and confusing depending on the student.
Computer learning is a great solution, but if they're just
digital versions of a book or a human teacher, they're not
utilizing some of the capabilities a computer has to offer.
the student takes a series of tests and the computer
ranks their cognitive abilities, strengths and weaknesses
and creates a lesson program especially for the student
a matter of seconds.
Although this may add a little time to the beginning of
teaching process, the time saved in the ensuing
customized lessons would be well worth it.
Plus as a joke, you could program it to have some super
clever scientist type with tons of PHDs take the test and
have the first lesson pop up like: "Cognitive abilities
discerned, lessons calibrated for your IQ level. Lesson 1:
"This is a doggie. Can you say doggie? Doggie's like to
bark. This doggie's name is Barky. Can you say Barky?"
But seriously, it could monitor your abilities and adjust
throughout the learning process. Can't spell? It'll add
some spelling and grammar lessons. Get a couple of math
problems wrong in the chemistry segment? A touchup
lesson gets put in there.
The learning experience customized and comfortable. It
could even take notice of when you typically get fatigued
and say "OK, go take a walk get some fresh air. See you
in 30 minutes."
