What is it similar to? What is it different from?

What is concept-based teaching and learning?
The concept-based design is fully supported by cognitive and learning research. When information today is a click away on a computer keyboard, the use of classroom time must shift focus from covering and memorizing information to thinking with and applying knowledge at both the factual and conceptual levels.
Thinking deeply with factual knowledge and concepts to communicate ideas and solve problems, transferring knowledge across distinct global contexts and situations, and seeing patterns and connections between concepts, ideas and situations are at the heart of concept-based teaching and learning. Less factual coverage can open the door to deeper thinking and understanding.
What can a concept-based model look like in our classrooms?
Making or drawing conclusions
How is this beneficial to our students?
Thinking – "Concept-based instruction requires thinking teachers, who, in turn, develop thinking students." Erickson, 2014
