How to get Beyond Memorization and Teach Kids to Embrace a Deeper Sense of Learning

For parents, terms like “rote memorization”, “experiential education” and “project-based curriculum” can feel overwhelming. For many of us, when it comes to education, our own educational experience is our sole point of reference.
However, brilliant researchers and neuroscientists have spent decades trying to help educators better understand how children learn, how their brains develop, and what it really means to find success beyond education. At the heart of this research is the focus on deeper learning – the process of fusing content knowledge with real-world situations so the content is transferred and internalized, and not just memorized.
