Sharrock's curator insight, June 5, 2013 2:16 PM

from the website: "There is a movement afoot to refocus education around demonstrated mastery of skills rather than seat time.

It’s time to rethink our assembly line approach to schooling and begin engaging students in more personalized and tailored ways. Luckily, a student-centered movement is gaining momentum in communities nationwide. One dimension of this movement is the promotion of competency-based education. Others include the development of richer tests, and enabling learning to happen anywhere at any time.
