Project Zero

Project Zero is a research group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. They have been investigating the development of learning processes in children, adults, and organizations since 1967. Oneof the outcomes of this extended study is the "Smart Schools" model, a set of seven guidelines for good education that is based on two guiding principles: 1) learning is a consequence of thinking--and good thinking is learnable by all students; 2)learning should include deep understanding, which involves the flexible, active use of knowledge.
