This discussion is intended to flesh out the direction that FWII is considering. This will help frame the partnership relationship between Certiport and FWII. This is based upon what we have learned so far, we are open; in fact, welcome your input on the viability and wisdom of this approach.
We see FWII as developing a Network of Learning Centers with Learning Circles hosted on the FWII social network.
Customized Individual Pathways
Based on our current understanding, we think that the pre-assessment, i.e. benchmark step, ought to lead to creating "customized pathways" for each student. The specific pathway is based upon the skills level of the student, the learning environments available, and the course/language availability. By “learning environments” we are including what can be done on-line and what will be done face-to-face, what will be self-directed and what will be done in a group setting.
Early Integration of Social Networks
The Learning Circles are hosted on the FWII social network. We will invite students to join "learning circles" as soon as they have the skills and resources to access the site and participate.
Social Enterprise Model
Our “business model” is similar to Certiport solution providers. We anticipate that the regional learning centers will deliver the training and support via learning circles hosted in social networks. There regional learning center partners will offer S2S learning programs to their service populations as an earned income strategy, i.e. social enterprise that can be an economic motivator.
We are seeking your input on this approach and are interested in turning this into a plan for FWII. What do you think?
