Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 30, 9:40 PM

As Common Core comes into play, you hear more and more people talking about competency education. A competency education allows students to progress at their speed. Students must demonstrate mastery of content, which are based on  objectives. Teaching truly becomes more personalized when you consider competency education.

This infographic explores competency education, comparing it to traditional education in three areas: curriculum, class completion, and average time to graduate.

Additional sections include:

* What a competency-based experience looks like

* The most common competency fields of study

* Benefits of competency based education learning

* Where to find competency based education

Although this infographic is published by a college the information is applicable to K-12 education.

Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.
