    I like the way Jane describes the three levels of knowledge/learning required. Im thinking that its not necessary to remove something from the curriculum so we can ‘fit in’ all the new learning that these 3 levels seem to imply. Instead, I’m thinking its the way learning happens which allows learning on these level to occur – perhaps these levels can occur simultaneuosly to some extent. All learners/students are valued for their unique knowledge/experiences in relation to the knowledge subject. If learners participate in ‘storying’- sharing their experiences and ‘who-they-are’ in relation to knowledge, the learning could involve all three levels. Eg 1. learning the original body of knowledge; 2.learning by being involved in an investigative process, the language and methods relevant to the original knowledge; 3. Creating new ideas/knowledge (meaning-making)by learners sharing and adding to their combined ideas and from here exploring further ideas together
