Learning to Learn

Ages: 12-16

Description of the practice

Learning-to-learn skills is one of the eight key competencies for lifelong learning defined by the EU (Recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006) which requires students to have the ability to organize and plan one's learning autonomously. It is the ability to manage time and information effectively individually or in groups. Developing this skill requires meaningful learning processes, as well as the work of other complementary key competencies. Motivation and confidence are crucial. Project work and other related methodologies contribute to the development of this skill.

Example of Implementation

The EDO research group, in conjunction with the Virolai School, has evaluated the Learning to Learn Project, an interdisciplinary globalized work experience, that seeks to stimulate the learning to learn competence, through the implementation of meaningful and cooperative learning projects, with the specific objectives that can be summarized in:
  • Determine the progress of the learning-to-learn competence and other competencies involved in each interdisciplinary proposal.
  • Evaluate students' transfer of learning linked to core competency in other contexts.
  • Evaluate the impact of interdisciplinary proposals linked to the project on the development of the learning-to-learn competence.
