    • I am working on a scope of work to hopefully secure a part time consulting gig with a university back east to introduce their Competency Based Education (CBE) program to Arizona schools. The idea is to initially target the lowest performing schools and looking for ideas on how best to engage Arizona superintendents and teachers around the benefits of the programs. Are their teacher groups, blog communities, civic groups, public forums to consider for an outreach program? Looking to incorporate some of these ideas into my proposal and would appreciate any and all feedback. Super excited about this opportunity as it speaks incredibly well to my interests in using technology to empower user communities.

      My understanding of CBE is that it is skills mastery-focused. FWIW, I would consider including adaptive testing in your proposal. Here’s a good podcast on using machine learning for adaptive assessments.

      (You can also DM me here if you need to take the conversation private.)

    • Thank you for the feedback Stephen but the program is set in stone so I will only be working with what is provided. Honestly I do not know much about the program as of yet so there may possibly be other components to this. But I will research the link you sent to help with questions I may have as I make it further into the process. The program is built around the concept of micro credentials which is something I am wildly interested in as I am a big fan of vocational programs and breaking apart conventional modes of education into highly targeted components. Do you have a background in educational tech? If so, I would love to DM you should I have questions.
