Deeper Learning

February 14, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

From AIR‘s spotlight on deeper learning:

“The combination of (1) a deeper understanding of core academic content, (2) the ability to apply that understanding to novel problems and situations, and (3) the development of a range of competencies, including people skills and self control, is called deeper learning. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation—a leader in the national initiative to promote deeper learning in schools—has defined deeper learning as “a set of competencies students must master in order to develop a keen understanding of academic content and apply their knowledge to problems in the classroom and on the job.”

Does Deeper Learning Improve Student Outcomes? [pdf] states “AIR’s Study of Deeper Learning: Opportunities and Outcomes found that students who attended high schools that explicitly focused on deeper learning (“network schools”) experienced better outcomes when measured against students in comparison schools.”
