Pamela D Lloyd‘s insight:

From very early in my life, possibly in my elementary school years, but certainly by the time I was in high school, I’ve felt that the age-based grouping of children for education was ineffective, holding some students back, while forcing others ahead before they were ready. Even without digital learning techniques, I believe that students, all students, benefit from a system that takes each individual’s learning styles and needs into account, recognizing mastery (or competency, as it’s referred to in this infographic) as the basis for placement in each subject. The advent of digital learning systems provides the means for making such a process easier and more cost-effective than ever before, and I hope that our schools, regardless of whether they are brick & mortor or via the Internet, will continue to explore ways to help every child learn in the way that works best for them.
