Learning transcends location in relevant and valued ways, connected to families, communities, and networks
Learner Connected: Anytime, Anywhere and Socially Embedded
Learning is not confined to the traditional boundaries of a school – it happens anytime, anywhere. It takes place across multiple mediums – at home, after school, in the community and in the workplace – along with peers, mentors, parents, educators, and community members. It is intentionally connected in meaningful and accredited ways.
Empower learners to understand their needs, strengths, interests and approaches to learning
Learner Focused: Tailored Learning Experiences
Learners have learning experiences that are relevant, contextualized and designed around a deep understanding of both academic and non-academic (e.g., social, cultural and emotional, etc.) needs, interests and strengths.
Allow learners to progress at their own pace based on demonstrated competencies
Learner Demonstrated: Competency-Based Progression
Learners begin at a level appropriate to their prior knowledge and learning needs; receive supports and pacing that their learning needs; demonstrate competency when ready; demonstrate evidence of learning in multiple ways; and receive recognition based on demonstrated competency (not seat time).
Enable learners to take ownership of their learning so that it can dynamically adjust to their skills, curiosity and goals
Learner Led: Learner Agency
Learners co-design their learning experiences; partner in setting learning goals and plans; articulate their interests, strengths and needs; assess and monitor their own progress; collaborate with others to achieve goals; advocate for needed support from teachers, peers, technology and other sources; reflect upon their learning in order to continually refine their learning strategies; and adopt a growth mindset.
