7Cs' of Formal Learning

Clark Aldrich reminds us:
  • Content: The material supporting any learning objective.
  • Curricula: How the content is chosen, validated, organized, and presented.
  • Coaching: The individual attention helping each student overcome their individual weaknesses, answer specific questions, and leverage their individual strengths, as well as provide motivation.
  • Certification: Proof and documentation that a level of competency has been reached (which also provides motivation).
  • Community: A group of peers that both make learning more effective and engaging.
  • day Care: The ability to house students for a specific time.
  • Cost: The amount of resources, including student time, a program requires.
