Is Competency Based Education the Next Game Changer on the Horizon? | EmeringEdTech

Is Competency Based Education the Next Game Changer on the Horizon? | EmeringEdTech | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

“Competency-based education (CBE) awards academic credit based on mastery of clearly defined competencies. CBE replaces the conventional model in which time is fixed and learning is variable with a model in which the time is variable and the learning is fixed.

 

CBE is built around clearly defined competencies and measurable learning objectives that demonstrate mastery of those competencies. Measuring learning by competency is not new, but various challenges facing higher education, combined with new models and technologies, have brought a new focus on CBE.

 

A growing number of competency-based programs have been developed at all levels of instruction. CBE capitalizes on the potential of online learning, enabling new models that can reduce both the cost and time needed to earn credentials while better preparing students for their professional lives.”

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, March 16, 5:27 PM

At technological institutions, CBE has moved along side with the expected learning outcomes as authentic learning.

Refreshing methods of introducing poetry to students - Innovate My School | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
Great poetry can be the kind of art that stays with you forever, be it Mid-Term Break by Seamus Heaney or Daffodils by William Wordsworth. However, given the old-school nature of poetry means that a lot of students will need a great introduction from a teacher. James Harlan discusses some cool ideas for getting students into the artform.

Integrating video projects into the classroom can be as simple or complex as you want. Just grab a phone, digital camera or tablet and your students are on their way.

Here are some video project ideas, divided into ideas for any classroom and ideas for specific subject areas:

Betty Skeet's curator insight, April 10, 5:57 AM

Video project ideas!

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, May 1, 6:12 AM

These look like great ideas to encourage media literacy as well. You have to understand media from the inside to create media. Nothing makes you more media literate then learning to create it.
