Description

Brain research reveals that learning happens within five core domains or pillars: symbols, patterns, order, categories and relations. Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa proposes that redesigning school curriculum around these five pillars rather than by traditional subject divisions could enable students to develop the transdisciplinary problem-solving skills that are often touted as the ultimate goal of 21st-century education.
