Seriously. I am not joking. I DO need some sort of advance organizer to help me connect the dots to a proficiency-based system and customized learning. I suspect I am not the only one. I am working hard at understanding, because I can see the promise of this type of education. It especially appeals to the middle level educator in me. Isn’t this congruent with all that we have believed in and worked towards for so many years?
Here is my challenge. How do all of the myriad of innovative practices, documents, philosophies, and organizations at play in schools right now connect to the bigger picture of this brave new world?
Proficiency Based Education Mass Customized Learning
Common Core Maine Learning Results
Multiple Pathways RISC (Reinventing Schools Coalition)
Standards Based Education Mastery Learning
Learning Targets Measurement Topics
Content Standards Performance Standards
MCCL (Maine Cohort for Customized Learning)
MLTI (Maine Learning Technology Initiative)
MICDL (Maine International Center for Digital Learning)
The DOE’s Education Evolving
PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports)
Standards Referenced Education
So I am going to work on the challenge of understanding. The learning curve is steep.
If you figure out an advance organizer before I do, will you share?
