When teaching, which questions should you ask to promote deeper learning? Here are examples of questions that promote different competences. Good teaching balances these types of questions.
The LearnLab learning tool is designed to promote learning of concepts and deep learning, but what is one to look for in practice to find out if deep learning is actually taking place?
LearnLab offers a free platform for creating and sharing educational content in the form of interactive learning sessions. You might have wondered why we can develop software and give it away for free? The answer is that we are supported by the Nordic public education to create the educational resources of tomorrow.
With the match step learners can find contexts and discover relations between concepts in a fun and engaging way.

Today, young learners grow up in a complex and rapidly changing world with environmental challenges, increasing inequalities and mental health issues. To address the new challenges we face, we need creativity, engagement, critical thinking, reflection, collaboration, and a global mindset for the citizens of the future. LearnLab is designed specifically for this purpose, using progressive pedagogical research and theory. By advancing and promoting deeper learning, the learner can discover new concepts which enable them to change the world for the better.
LearnLab consists of a unique collection of learning tools and content, designed to be engaging, fun, collaborative and interactive, while also giving educators unique insight into new types of assessment. Each LearnLab session can be created, using various interactive tasks, to fit specific concepts and goals. Participants visualize, cooperate, communicate, go deeper, and explore themes and concepts, in an engaging way during every LearnLab session.
As education change from the traditional function of providing information into the function of facilitating and guiding learners, so must the tools and methods we use in the learning process. LearnLab is created with this in mind, enabling participants to produce content and be active in their learning. Participants can interact verbally and by using their phones, tablets, and computers.
Great learning happens in groups! This is why collaboration is a central focus for LearnLab. LearnLab’s functionality is designed for cooperative learning, problem-solving and divergent thinking. By working in groups and creating together, learners can strengthen their social and collaborative skills.
