Hi Penny — I heard Spring Branch was doing some exploring. That’s exciting. As a district you all have done such great work to improve your schools. I was there a long, long time ago.

Hi Stephanie– would love to hear your thoughts about CBE and CTE. CTE has done so much work in this area awhile ago but I’m not sure it was ever taken to a point of being able to create alignement between secondary and college levels of CTE. would love to hear your insights about how this more structural approach to CBE is the same or different from the work in CTE that was done previously.

Joe – In the CBE model, the “work” actually shifts from the teacher to the student as the student takes more ownership of their learning. Student agency becomes a priority for teacher and student as the personal learning playlist is developed.

Joe, I have found the reality to be that those teachers, getting the highest performance out of ALL learners are already working hard. In many ways, harder than others. When they combine, the load can be shared.

Dave Richards 2:17 PM
Can we truly personalize learning without implementing a competency based model? It seems districts start with wanting to personalize learning (1:1), transition through standards based learning, and realize CBE is the “mature” state of personalized learning.

Stephanie Hargens 2:18 PM
I think we previously did better measuring students by their competency and letting the stay on a lesson or objective until it was mastered. With the tremendous pressure of standardized testing and school year calendars, we have moved away a bit from that.

– Renee 1 joined the Main Room. ( 2:18 PM ) –

chris sturgis 2:18 PM
Stephanie — we still don’t know if we have to throw out the whole traditional system or if there are just parts of it that are problematic. For example, courses are a way of organizing learning that can probably be helpful in next generationl learning. But schools can move away from it if they just want to use the competencies and standards. I think age-based grades can also still be helpful in organizing communities of learners that support each other and are important for adolescent development. So I think it is important to test out ideas and see what the value is of each piece of the traditional system

Dave — i think you talking about the greater flexiblity you can get from blended learning when you mention 1:1? correct? I think there are lots of districts that are still traditional that are using blended learning. It’s not impossible. just not sure what their results are?

My school, American School based in Lansing, Illlinois, is a private, accredited distance ed high school. We have been using competency ed (Mastery Learning) for over 100 years. Courses include defined objectives, self-check tests (formative assessments), unit assessments, completely self-paced. This fosters the self-directed learning that the competency ed “movement” values!

I view scaffolding as meeting a student where they are at in their learning and then supporting them as they move forward. Scaffolding in the traditional sense means to support kids to their grade level curriculum–often overlooks learning gaps they have.

Scaffolding as a putty in addition to a framework!

 

Oliver Grenham 2:40 PM
What has been learned about overcoming the barrier of time bound, mass administed state assessments to students of the same age at the same time? Students love learning about and are empowered by their own data but it must be highly relevant.

 

ebarilla 2 2:40 PM
I agree. In traditional scaffolding, not one ensures success at one level prior to moving on to next

 

Suzan Thompson 2:40 PM
I do tend to agree. It’s more about meeting them where they are.

 

Norma Caballero 2:41 PM
Another thing, is the resistance of some teacher to really implement competency at class

 

Dr. Emil Ahangarzadeh 2:41 PM
THANK YOU for the Prisinors of Time text. Looks interesting. Written over 20 years ago and we’re still not getting it.

Suzan Thompson 2:41 PM
Great response!

 

Stephanie Hargens 2:41 PM
Oliver-excellent question. We need to move toward CBE where it doesn’t exist, but how do we compensate for the strict accountability with state testing?

 

Dr. Emil Ahangarzadeh 2:42 PM
Would love to connect on Twitter. Handles?

 

Jennifer C. 2:42 PM
Do CBE lessons consider high-ability learners as a matter of course? Are lessons regularly offered at a high enough level for advanced students?

Challenge: 1. content is still being honored over skill. 2. It widens the achievement gap 3. It will focus towards “checlist” learning

– Dave Schmidt left the Main Room. ( 2:44 PM ) –

Morgan Cottle 2:44 PM
Biggest challenge I see, mirrors what Rose said. How can we embed resources, pedagogy and ideas, instread of layering on top. Can’t be seen as an additional, but a different way to approach teaching and learning.

Big challenge is the need for grades and HS GPA’s for college entry, scholarships, etc.

 

Rose Colby 2:46 PM
Jennifer C: Yes!

 

Eve T 2:46 PM
I think a key part is to engage parents and students to really let them know the benefits and strengths of competency based learning. Help to show the benefits and success goals.

 

Lee 2:46 PM
quieting volume on high stakes assessments, especially those highly content driven.

– Evan Abbey left the Main Room. ( 2:46 PM ) –

Susan 2:47 PM
Another challenge is the vast amount of time it takes to develop and implement – for teachers and administration

In NH, we blend SBAC once per grade span with high quality performance tasks/assessments embedded in the regular curriculum.

Parents are more ready for this kind of learning than we give them credit for being. If asked the questions about why we continue to “do” education as we have, they are quick to realize the need for change.

Diversity can be created when barrier to entry for access to knowledge and the service/share economy is lower. ie. lower cost for iNACOL conferences

Maja Fickett, SC 2:53 PM
I think first that you need to have a plan on paper that goes through a backwards design of what skills are needed and how that applies to a specific subject area. You must also take out the middle man who is looking to make a buck on this process. Then you can adjust the level, how it is taught, how it is perceived, etc to get the equity in there. Those required skills are universal.

 

l walters 1 2:53 PM
Maybe, if we start with trusting student voice, we have a chance to change the system.

 

Marie Watson 2:53 PM
School district administrators and principals MUST allow teachers to take risks and trust them or the innovation can never occur.

We are finding that pre-service teacher interns are coming to work in our school and are taking information back to their schools of higher ed. They have actually approached us about what we are doing.

It ranks and sorts kids in ways in addition to racism. Poverty, whatever color it wears, is a huge indicator of what is offered to these kids.

 

BogiM 2:57 PM
Agreed

– Denise Wright – VirtualSC left the Main Room. ( 2:57 PM ) –

chris sturgis 2:57 PM
Marie – -totally agree that class is just as powerful. the research on chile about growth mindset and class is pwoerful.

 

Rose Colby 2:58 PM
Susan–one barrier–we have certain parents who want their kids sorted and ranked from an early age. Often they have greater political leverage in school governance.

 

Lee 2:58 PM
Yes Rose, End of Average is outstanding!

Ken OC 2:58 PM
I disagree that a school of 1000 students with transcripts and GPA’s is focuused on ranking and sorting and selecting. If teachers are focussed on standards, use assessment for learning and are criterion-referenced in their thinking then we can have success for all.

– Shannan left the Main Room. ( 2:58 PM ) –

as a private distance ed school, we are totally blind to race and SES. It IS possible

– Jesse Tow left the Main Room. ( 2:59 PM ) –

– Pilar Olivarria joined the Main Room. ( 2:59 PM ) –

Marie Watson 2:59 PM
System challenges – we need to develop key indicators of success in a CBE system. We continue to be “judged” based on an outdated system of accountability.

 

Susan 2:59 PM
can a low SES student/family afford a private distance ed school?

 

Dave Richards 2:59 PM
An LMS system that supports CBE would be tremendous! We have had many challenges in this area.

 

Matthew Schempp 3:00 PM
I don’t know if being blind is the goal, though
