    Have you ever considered a topic, and done a bit of a K-W-L for yourself? Have you thought about what you know and what you don't? The author of this short online article did this very thing about adaptive learning platforms and devised 5 questions about what he didn't know. These questions can inform our thinking about adaptive learning systems that we might consider implementing in our classrooms.
