Today we are moving into an Information Revolution that is every bit as life altering as the previous Industrial Revolution. Students must now stay in school longer, and achieve at a much higher rate than in the past. But high school students can benefit from adult learning and instructional design principles used to successfully create training programs in the workplace. The reason that workplace training is successful is that learners are looked at individually (or in groups with similar characteristics), and then training is designed just for them. Training programs are also specifically designed to meet the new technology needs of the 21st century. This book can be a starting point for secondary education majors, high school teachers, and administrators to begin to consider how individualizing instruction could be done for high school students. With computerized applications implemented alongside a standardized curriculum, it can be possible for individual student needs to be met while also ensuring that group needs are also met. A powerful motivational factor can also be introduced that will make students want to learn, and to be life-long learners. The time is now.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The ways we are expected to engage in lifelong learning have changed for adults and for those approaching adulthood. Christine Bernat, by stressing the use of individualized training for high school students, suggests ways to embrace technology and develop adolescents into adults who engage in productive, progressive learning. The book, Individualized Learning With Technology, while not being overly prescriptive about particular software programs, invokes the psychological and philosophical underpinnings educators have long trusted to make a case for revolutionizing high school education by expanding the menu of practices. -- Dana Haring, Ed.D, English language arts instructor, Kalispell, MT
This ambitious manuscript includes extensive references from psychology, education, learning theory, brain research, and personal connections, all with examples and bits of humor. In making her case for infusing technology into the curriculum as an integral strand for secondary students, Christine Bernat has systematically provided theory from the greatest thinkers and philosophers, coupled with current learning theories and practices. I admire her passion in giving a positive direction and a thrust for improvement. The bottom line is to "get to the IT". And she has most definitely presented in this way. -- Bobbie Barrett, Ed.D, curriculum director, Whitefish, MT School District
