* There's no one definition, but school standards minister David Miliband calls personalised learning "high-quality teaching based on sound knowledge of each child's needs"

* His vision is not too far removed from the 1944 Education Act, which obliges schools to provide "an education appropriate to the abilities, aptitudes and needs" of every pupil
