Arkansas’ Own Team Digital will introduce participants to competency-based learning and policy changes, such as ESSA and ACT 872: Flexibility in Awarding of Course Credits, that have paved the way for innovation. Many transformations are taking place in Arkansas as we move toward becoming national leaders in student-focused education. Participants will leave this session equipped with information that is fundamental to shift from the time-based education system to a learning-based system.
Participants will leave this session able to:
? Compare and contrast the traditional model to competency-based model of learning.
? Identify differentiated and timely support to provide each student flexibility.
? Discover what competency-based learning looks like from different perspectives.
? Explore what competency-based learning looks like in your school.
