Competency-based education gets a boost from the Education Department @insidehighered

Competency-based education gets a boost from the Education Department @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
by Paul Fain

"The U.S. Department of Education will give its blessing -- and grant federal aid eligibility -- to colleges' experimentation with competency-based education and prior learning assessment.


"On Tuesday the department announced a new round of its “experimental sites” initiative, which waives certain rules for federal aid programs so institutions can test new approaches without losing their aid eligibility. Many colleges may ramp up their experiments with competency-based programs -- and sources said more than 350 institutions currently offer or are seeking to create such degree tracks."

12 Fun Apps for Learning Math Facts - appydazeblog | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"Let’s face it – getting kids to learn their math facts can be a challenge. But once they know them, they know them forever. The process of “doing math” becomes more efficient and less frustrating when kids know their facts. Luckily there are plenty of fun apps that can help kids become “math fact” proficient. All of these apps are FREE or were “FREE for a limited time” when I reviewed them. Check them out – they’re all great!"

“El mobile learning impulsado por los jóvenes”. Parece un titular pero no lo es. Como suele pasar en muchos otros ámbitos en los que el uso social de una innovación se adelanta a su legislación, en educación grupos de jóvenes en todo el mundo están reivindicando las posibilidades de aprendizaje que la tecnología móvil puede aportarles para su día a día en las aulas y fuera de ellas. Un ejemplo es ischool initiative, movimiento que está revolucionando las aulas en Estados Unidos. El programa m-Schools ha iniciado ya su andadura en España.

The portion of first-time U.S. students who return to college for a second year has dropped 1.2 percentage points since 2009, according to a report that looks like bad news for the national college completion push.


The findings are the latest from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. The nonprofit group regularly releases studies based on the Clearinghouse’s data sets, which cover 96 percent of students nationwide.
