EdTech Magazine: 3 Ways to Overcome High Student-Teacher Ratios and Improve Personalized Learning

Technology and analytics could be the solution to challenges created by teacher shortages and overcrowded classes.

Emily Levitt, Vice President of Education at Sylvan Learning, wrote in EdTech about how the use of strategic technology in the classroom allows teachers to spend more time with students.

From face-to-face interactions to designing personalized learning plans for students, Levitt said that teachers can extend reach in Sylvan classrooms through efficient technology use, increased testing and motivational systems.
