Asking More - The Case for Deeper Learning

2,526 views

Published on

The Hewlett Foundation’s education programme, under Barbara Chow’s
leadership, has made a major contribution to educational thinking by
emphasising ‘deeper learning’ as the key to the 21st century.

She defines deeper learning as an “amalgam of ‘higher order skills’
combined with foundational academic knowledge” and argues that in an
age of globalisation, success in deeper learning needs to be for everyone.
