Change is happening again in Finland.  I love how they are creating a streamed approach as well as deeper thinking skills, and a more career aligned focus.

Deeper Learning. Is this something new? This post explores deeper learning, sharing what it is, and what it is not. Two definitions of the term will make it clear that deeper learning is a goal of educators, but one that may not be reached.

There is an in-depth discussion of deeper learning followed by suggestions on how to put deeper learning into your practice. Five principles are shared.

1. The three competencies - cognitive, intrapersonal and interpersonal

2. Test format - learning study strategies that allow students to learn the difference between surface learning and deep learning, which requires that they be "cognitively active learning behaviors" (as opposed to "cognitively passive learning behaviors)

3. Predicting and retrieving

4. Source diversity

5. Curriculum wide adoption

Additional information is found for all the principles in the post. Click through to learn more.

Purposeful play should be the central learning experience in early learning classrooms. It is a natural way of learning that supports creativity and imagination. But why should play be limited to primary classrooms only? It doesn't matter what age we are; we all like to play. 

This is Trend #7 in the 10 Trends to Personalize Learning in 2015. The focus of the conversations was around the big question.
