External Resources

  • Competency Works from iNACOL is a blog dedicated to providing information about competency education in the K-12 education system. CompetencyWorks shares original research, perspectives from a variety of practitioners, policy advancements, papers on emerging issues and a wiki with resources curated from across the field. CompetencyWorks also offers a blog on competency education in higher education so that the sectors can learn from each other and begin to align systems across K-12, higher education and the workplace. Do a search for Mastery Collaborative to see profiles of some NYC member schools.
