Dimensions of Learning

Dimensions of Learning is a comprehensive model that uses what researchers and theorists know about learning to define the learning process. Its premise is that five types of thinking — what we call the five dimensions of learning — are essential to successful learning. The Dimensions framework will help you to maintain a focus on learning, study the learning process, and plan curriculum, instruction, and assessment that takes into account the five critical aspects of learning.

Yet it was not until 2005 that the key discovery was published in Scientific American explaining exactly how long-term memories are formed in the brain. Since then, staff of Monkseaton High School have been working on translating this discovery into real experiences for children, creating a solution called ‘Spaced Learning’.
