    So great to have this! I will definitely include it in our Mastery Learning Resource Bank that provides brief definitions of the many terms floating around Competency Education these days, alongside strong resources to help people see what’s developing in the field http://www.redesignu.org/design-lab/mastery-learning/resource-bank. Thanks for taking the time to explore these terms so deeply.

    I enjoyed reading this piece – It seems to resonate deeply with the “10 Expectations” described by Elliot Washor and Charlie Mojkowski in “Leaving to Learn”… I’m intrigued to hear what you think about this 3-min video? -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K96c-TGnSf4

    (and there’s additional information and resources here – http://10x.bigpicture.org/)

    Great article! Our district has a vision that interconnects all three definitions as a single initiative. Though it will take time to arrive at a point when students advance based on competency/growth and ‘grade levels’ no longer exist, through personalization, student choice, and achievement, we will create opportunities for kids never before seen in our communities.

    seems students can learn to be independent learners utilizing the online resources and discuss with peers.

    Good article and makes several interesting points, however my question is, is this what and how we are expected to teach? Do we as teachers use this technology as a rule or an exception? I believe this is an extra tool to ad to your daily teaching activities. If you are successful with the methods you have developed…why change them?

    I enjoyed the article. Learning how to personalize competency-based blended and online learning so that my students are more engaged in the learning process and challenged at their appropriate academic level opens provides exciting opportunities. I agree that “it is vital for both practitioners and policymakers to understand the key nuances of these terms” used for this educational approach so that we can more rapidly and successfully disseminate and apply the information.

    The opportunity to personalize learning for each student is invaluable. All too often, students are promoted with gaps in their learning which many times are not filled. This type of instruction gives educators the opportunity to avoid this. All students can receive individualized instruction in all content areas.

    Very interesting information about different ways of teaching to keep students more alert and more focused

    I feel that through blended and personalized learning and setting high expectations for our students, they will be able to have a higher sense of accomplishment.

    I teach a Special Education Life Skills class I would love to see what something like this would look like for my kids.

    in special education with students with different disabilities and learning at different levels staff would have to be clear in the instructions and communicate with message interesting and enjoyable to entire class
