Every student has the capacity for rich, meaningful learning experiences. How can educators tap into the motivation that helps drive a love of learning in students? They key might be found in the “deeper learning” movement.
Deeper Learning: The phrase implies a rich learning experience for students that allows them to really dig into a subject and understand it in a way that requires more than just memorizing facts.
What defines deeper learning? Six competencies have been identified: mastering content, critical thinking, effective written and oral communication, collaboration, learning how to learn, and developing academic mindsets
The elements that make up this approach are not necessarily new — great teachers have been employing these tactics for years.
