Where does understanding fit into the curriculum

May 3, 2013 in Uncategorized

In this week’s podcast, the 21st Century Learning Initiative’s Janet Lawley concludes her look at the curriculum.

Janet says that understanding brings us to learning, which brings us to what education is all about. Schools major on knowledge and skills but they do not always lead to understanding.

Learning is what education is – or should be – all about. Learning is about looking at where what children are discovering sits with everything else they know.
