Engaging Students with Personalized EdTech

Technology is seen as a panacea for education. At Cengage Learning we believe engagement is the foundation of learning, and technology is one way to engage learners. However, educational technology has long-ignored a key player – the student, until recently. Learn about and see examples of the evolution in edtech to focus on the student and personalized learning, and hear how one student used technology to transform his life from to become an engaged, successful learner.
