What is Deeper Learning?
Although the job market in the United States has changed significantly over the past few decades, our K-12 classrooms still operate the same way they did in the industrial era 100 years ago. The students of today need more than basic math and English skills to succeed in the workplace of the future. They need to engage in Deeper Learning.
Deeper Learning describes the higher-order thinking skills, learning dispositions, and collaboration skills needed for students to succeed in twenty-first century work and civic life. Deeper Learning competencies promote the ability to transfer learning and apply to new and complex situations in an ever-changing global environment.
