Design-Lab Schools Learning Framework© looks at ALL of knowledge.

The proliferation of knowledge has made it impossible for any one person to know everything. Access to vast amounts of knowledge is readily available through technology so there is less need to actively store the information in our brains. What is important for students to know is the various systems by which discrete bits of knowledge are connected.

There are a variety of major systems that connect learning. Design-Lab Schools Learning Framework © teaches students to use Systems Thinking and an understanding of major systems to learn new knowledge.
