The Future of Learning: Compelling, Customized, Connected & Competency-Based

The Future of Learning: Compelling, Customized, Connected & Competency-Based | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
There is an emerging opportunity to boost student achievement and improve working for teachers here in the U.S--and a huge opportunity to expand access to quality learning to every young person on earth.

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, June 14, 11:34 PM

Compelling, customized (I like personalized better, but it's not a "C")' connected, and competency-based lea earning will all be a part of the future of learning. And as learners become more independent and are given an environment that supports freedom of exploration, they will also become more self-determined. Sounds like Heutagogy!
