Why Competency based curriculum? Why Smart Edoo?
The introduction of the Competence Based Curriculum system of education heralds a new beginning of individualized learning because unlike the 8-4-4 system of education, CBC provides parallel and complementary tiers; Academic, Vocational and Talent. It has gone beyond the traditional IQ assumptions of single intelligence in humans. Its intelligences include; logical-mathematical intelligence, spatial intelligence, linguistic intelligence, musical intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence, interpersonal intelligence and naturalist intelligence. The system adopts three levels of education; Early Years Education, Middle Level Education and Tertiary & University education.
The CBC is designed to be fun and stimulate learners and not stuff them with facts and figures. 8-4-4 system is phasing out because it has been deemed unsuitable as it focuses on memorization, not understanding. The system only allows leaners to gain practical experience and apply academic knowledge and skills to find solutions to specific issues.
Like the new system, Smart Edoo -an online learning platform- lays emphasis on nurturing talent and perfecting skills. It recognized children as differently endowed and made it possible to take care of different abilities, interests and orientations in learners. Smart Edoo offers its users a wealth of features including; can be used on both smartphone devices and computers, it has comprehensive lessons and notes, learners will sit smart quizzes to test their understanding of the lesson and parents are able to monitor the progress of students as they learn.
