Explicit is a place to learn from an expert.
Explicit learning provides a platform for the acquisition of new knowledge where:
- learning goals and intentions are clear
- learners are generally directed to a central focus point
- new content can be delivered in a virtual or physical manner.
Explicit learning should be provided in short, sharp sessions and may take place with large group, small group or individual student audiences.
Teachers may have a more direct role in this mode where they are the expert and model new learning or provide new information. They may create or source virtual and digital content for students to view and save for later reference material.
