Surface Learning vs. Deep Learning: How Technology Can Help Students Think Deeper
Which is more important: students having a solid foundation of basic skills or students possessing an ability to think deeply and critically? The best answer is both! Teachers sometimes stop at basic knowledge and fail to challenge students to dig deeper into the content. Other times, teachers don’t spend enough time on surface-level knowledge and students fail to transfer learning and apply it in a critical way. This webinar will demonstrate various ways that technology can assist teachers in ensuring surface-level knowledge is gained and the transfer of learning happens so that students move to higher levels of thinking about the content.
