Total Learning Architecture (TLA) Enables Next-generation Learning via Meta-adaptation

Technology is becoming ever more central to teaching and training. In classrooms, students use intelligent tutors and adaptive tests instead of textbooks and worksheets. In daily life, mobile devices enable blended, on-demand and ubiquitous life-long learning applications. Connected, pervasive media enables compelling transmedia learning (Raybourn, 2014) experiences. However, learning opportunities are still often implemented in "walled gardens" or stand-alone technology systems that must be manually curated and coordinated with all the others through costly, one-off efforts of developers or individual instructors.
