Paradigm Change in Military Education and Training


Educational Technology Volume 54, Number 3, ISSN 0013-1962


All branches of the U.S. military are moving toward education and training that is tailored to meet individuals' needs wherever they are and whenever they are ready to learn. The result will be a culture of continuous, personalized learning with learner progress that is based on proficiency and a greater emphasis on technology-enabled immersive learning environments. This article identifies challenges for military education and training, followed by a description of the ways the Army, Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard are transforming their education and training systems to address those challenges. Finally, common threads, representative programs, and impediments to paradigm change are discussed.
