The military must produce leaders capable of operating within today’s rapidly changing environment, often with less time for schoolhouse instruction. For this reason, the Army is investigating strategies for efficiently educating adaptive, agile thinkers. This presentation offers three evidence-based strategies having the potential to make education more powerful: (1) rich context using immersive technology-based scenarios; (2) Guided Experiential Learning (GEL) design to ensure far transfer, and (3) learning self regulation skills for deeper understanding.
