What Is Missing in Personalized Learning in School?

In Part 2 on the topic of personalized learning author, Justin Reich continues his views on  using tech tools.  He feels that collaboration, working in groups, motivating students to work with each other - those communal responsibilities cannot be addressed in personalized computer programs. He does say that personalization optimizes observable characteristics.  He explains that the ethics of communal responsibility, those unmeasurable parts of our journey are so valuable but cannot be measured by computers.  How do you feel about this?
