Supporting research

• Individualize your lessons: It still makes sense to differentiate your instruction, even if students don’t have a single dominant learning style. Avoid a one-size-fits-all method of teaching, and think about students’ needs and interests.





Personalized competency based education

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, 32 percent of fourth-graders and 24 percent of eighth-graders aren't reading at a basic level. Fewer than 40 percent are proficient or advanced.

Effective Use of Self-paced Learning in the Classroom Environment




Abstract The advances in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and its rapid growth are changing the way people use, develop, process and disseminate information and instruction {technology}. There is no doubt that ICT use in the classroom increase student’s motivation to learn, engage in learning and give independence in learning. Evidence shows that there is a correlation between using ICT in schools and students academic achievement across a range of courses. Student are comfortable and fulfilled in an ICTenvironmentand usingthisasa bench mark,[integratingitwith a self-paced studentcentered learning] in conjunction with the conventional classroom learning will go a long way to improve learning thereby increasing academic performance of the students at large. This paper explores the potential of self-paced e-learning alongside with conventional classroom learning and the positive impact the integration of the two can have on student’s academic performance when incorporatedintotheNigeriaEducationalsystem.
