New OECD study finds that U.S. adults rank low on literacy and numeracy,  However the  economy and innovation capability in the United States are still very competitive.

One reason could be that American labor market is good at attracting talented foreigners, offering them more money than they could make elsewhere.,  This comment comes from Andreas Schleicher, the O.E.C.D, deputy director for education and skills in an article  recently published in  the New York Times: Stubborn Skills Gap in America’s Work Force Published: October 8, 2013

Competencias Digitales

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, February 3, 2013 4:04 PM

From very early in my life, possibly in my elementary school years, but certainly by the time I was in high school, I've felt that the age-based grouping of children for education was ineffective, holding some students back, while forcing others ahead before they were ready. Even without digital learning techniques, I believe that students, all students, benefit from a system that takes each individual's learning styles and needs into account, recognizing mastery (or competency, as it's referred to in this infographic) as the basis for placement in each subject. The advent of digital learning systems provides the means for making such a process easier and more cost-effective than ever before, and I hope that our schools, regardless of whether they are brick & mortar or via the Internet, will continue to explore ways to help every child learn in the way that works best for them.

I don't think about competency in exactly this way...but this conversation is a fabulous one to be in.
