How Digital Learning Platforms Can Drive Competency-Based Education
In this Whitepaper you’ll discover
The need for curriculum reform is becoming more broadly recognized, with schools experimenting with new instructional approaches. These approaches are intended to provide more personalized learning experiences while simultaneously ensuring that every student has a sound foundation in the skills and competencies needed to succeed in the twenty-first century.
Competency-based education is an approach to designing learning programs with a focus on competencies (knowledge, skills, and abilities) rather than time spent in a classroom. The approach allows students to progress at their own pace, with the education delivery being tailored to different learning abilities.
This paper will cover:
Five basic components that are necessary for a competency-based education program.
What are the commonalities and differences between personalised learning, blended learning and competency-based learning.
Two major barriers to the implementation of effective competency-based education – defining competencies and transition challenges.
How digital learning platforms like MagicBox offer effective competency-based learning tools to help define learning objectives, document learning outcomes and map competencies to the curriculum.
