|So called "individualized" computer programs are a far cry from "learner-centered." Generalizing that the implementation of "learner-centered" programs can create negative learning effects is warranted only when the program in question is truly learner-centered. Computer programs that claim to be "individualized" typically teach the same content to all students, but at a different rate. Equating "individualized" with "learner-centered" in this context suggests a grave misunderstanding of authentic learner-centered programs.|
