NRC Report Highlights Importance of Deeper Learning

NRC Report Highlights Importance of Deeper Learning | changing education and learning | Scoop.it

The paper poses a new definition for deeper learning

Ruta's insight:

"The process through which a person becomes capable of taking what was learned in one situation and applying it to new situations - in other words, learning for 'transfer.'" 

"The term 'deeper learning' may be new, but its basic concepts are not,".


"Deeper learning is what highly effective educators have always provided: the delivery of rich core content to students in innovative ways that allow them to learn and then apply what they have learned.

How Digital Learning Contributes to Deeper Learning

Ruta's insight:

Great teachers have always asked good questions, pushed students to go further, and demanded demonstrations of learning. 


We believe it's possible to create learning environments at scale that ask more of our students and support their success with a sequence of experiences that prepare them for their future. We think these environments will blend modes of learning and will always ask students to show what they know. We know it's possible to create great low-tech experiences, but we believe that to create deeper learning opportunities at scale that schools will need to use new tools to leverage teacher talent.


deeper learning prepares students to master core academic content, think critically and solve complex problems, work collaboratively, communicate effectively, and learn how to learn.


when we have observed deeper learning, we've seen students taking on new roles: writing as a journalist, experimenting as a scientist, investigating as a historian, building as engineers, inventing as entrepreneurs, managing working hands-on as an apprentice, coding as a gamer, and coaching as a teacher. Check out our infographic "Digital Learning Contributes to Deeper Learning" for more on these roles.
