Mass Customized Learning concretely describes a technologically empowered, learner focused alternative to our present industrial age, assembly line school structure. What if every day, every learner came to school and was met with customized learning activities at his or her precise developmental and achievement level, was learning in his or her most effective learning styles with content of interest, was challenged, was successful and left school eager to come back tomorrow? This is not only possible with today's technologies it is inevitable. Industry has figured out how to mass customize products and services, education is poised for this leap.
