The conclusions at the end make the article. We need to ensure that we choose the right tool for the learning context and the student or student involved.

Often the complaint or stopping point in the development for community level competency training at the industry endorsed level ... "We can't check competency online!".


There are really plenty of options though, from "selfie" videos of presentation delivery or skill demonstration, web-conference with video, Skype, FaceTime, YouTube upload, viewing and selecting the correct/incorrect video from a list ... the simple fact that creating video for distribution/sharing is almost too easy - a simple Press Here to publish online sometimes - means there really shoudn't be any need not to progress the online competency assessment model.

Roundtable on Personalised Learning (through the BCASCD)

Roundtable on Personalised Learning (through the BCASCD) | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"On Thursday, November 3rd, 2011, members of the Metro Vancouver education community from a range of perspectives met to address the big questions around Personalised Learning. As an organization, BCASCD promotes the exemplary practices in curriculum and develops leadership and professional capacity for the success of all learners. As such, a roundtable on Personalised Learning was held. The executive invited educators from a range of districts and on various pathways of their careers in education, including student-teachers, classroom teachers, district support teachers, vice-principals, principals, district principals, post-secondary teacher-educators, and senior administrators.


Four areas around Personalised Learning were discussed, with the intent of creating a working document demonstrating what Personalised Learning may look like at a class, school, district and provincial level."


These areas were:

> Stakeholders:  Who are they?  What are their needs?

> Competencies/skills/knowledge: What are the ‘must-haves’? What are the ‘would-like-to-haves’?

> Assessment/Reporting: How does Personalised Learning change reporting schedules, assessments (AFL) and student engagement;

> Structures: What are the environmental/space/time requirements.


Read about what ideas emerged from this roundtable discussion as British Columbia embarks on implementing personalised learning in their province.
