How Digital Learning Contributes to Deeper Learning

“How Digital Learning Contributes to Deeper Learning” by Carri Schneider and Tom Vander Ark is a white paper that examines how key aspects of personal digital learning – common standards, next-generation assessments, blended learning, and affordable devices – can provide deeper learning opportunities for students.

This paper identifies three primary ways that digital learning promotes deeper learning:

  • Personalized skill building in preparation for deeper learning (e.g., adaptive learning in the Learning Lab at Rocketship Elementary);
  • Schools and tools that foster deeper learning (e.g., project-based learning networks like New Tech); and
  • Extended access (e.g., access to quality courses and teachers online).
