From the Learning Exchange web site:

Innovations in Thinking and Learning: Building a Thinking Classroom: “The purpose of this resource is to introduce educators to 3 approaches that lead to deep learning: Knowledge Building, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning, and Integrative Thinking. This type of learning that focuses on problem solving and developing critical modes of thinking is essential to prepare students to be happy and successful now and in their future lives. Each pedagogy helps students develop the competencies they need to become responsible and contributing global citizens.

This resource introduces the key ideas of each approach through the words of the founding thinkers. Primary, junior, intermediate and senior classroom examples illustrate what effective teaching and learning might look like through the lens of each approach.”

There is lots here to take in, and many. many videos (interviews, lessons, and more.

Check it out! Rowan

PS IMHO, Ontario educators should bookmark the Learning Exchange as well as the EduGains site
