If I had to describe the Education Achievement Authority as succinctly as possible, I would say, “Individualized Student Centered Learning.”
The traditional model of learning forces students to be passive as they learn. Watch and listen to the teacher lecture, and, assuming you were paying attention, you should have learned the concept no problem.
Instead, many schools are making the shift to student centered platforms, making the student the driving force behind their own education.
Students are allowed to move at their own pace- it could be slower if history takes a little longer to stick or they could be faster if math just clicks. Kids won’t be left behind in the dust, and they won’t be bored as they wait for the rest of the class.
