Highlights

We define “deeper learning” as the process through which an individual becomes capable of taking what was learned in one situation and applying it to new situations (i.e., transfer). p. 17

The product of deeper learning is transferable knowledge, including content knowledge in a domain and knowledge of how, why, and when to apply this p. 17

knowledge to answer questions and solve problems p. 18

e refer to this blend of both knowledge and skills as “21st century competencies.” p. 18

deeper learning allows the individual to transfer what was learned to solve new problems. p. 18
