Learning is not just about knowing things, nor is it something that only happens in schools, colleges and universities; it is continual and is required to improve knowledge and skills.
People in all walks of life need to learn new skills, take in new concepts, assess new situations and be able to deal with the unexpected. Possessing existing skills and principles to be able to learn new ones is vital.
The 2006 Gilbert Report recommended to the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) (now Department for Education) that all schools (by 2020) should have incorporated Learning to Learn principles in their school. This resource focuses specifically on integrating Learning to Learn concepts into physical education. It examines the concept of learning in its widest context, emphasising that learning is learnable.
The style is engaging and the authors have used narrative and story carefully to make it an absorbing read, shedding light on the why and how of learning.
