Learning is about searching out the meaning and creating a structure of understanding; thinking beyond the information that is introduced and dealing systematically yet flexibly with new problems; adopting a critical attitude to information and communicating ideas effectively. Pupils need to be coached to become better thinkers and to understand what is required to become better learners.
