Apparently some schools want to use this " new radical" idea!

In short, Slow Learning

promotes deep learning
crosses genres, disciplines
is grounded in the interests of the learner
champions the pleasures of learning
promotes inquiry and dialogue
lasts a lifetime
allows for authentic learning
seeks unmediated experiences
supports, and is supported by learning in community

Sound familiar?

It's wrapping up old ideas in new jargon, and perhaps being a resource point for schools embracing this (as they have been encouraged to do for some years now) - or at least the individualised and cross genre/discipline bit. I can remember reading about similar (without the new name) in TES over the years.

It's like that in a lot of educational thinking.
