    Description

    Improvement of learning, including self-regulation as the motor of learning, can be a problem if the identification of relevant information, or its adequate understanding, are not self-evident in school. How can self-regulation of pupils be built into school practice, to improve learning and education in structured and empirically controlled ways? We introduce a multilevel educational model with respect to the longitudinal development and stimulation of learning processes of a pupil since the start of kindergarten. Self-regulation of a pupil, or a group of pupils, is built into this model. The resulting multilevel school process is expected to describe and explain the possible risks involved for the pupils deviating most from the mean in their group (highly able pupils, pupils with cognitive, social or emotional problems). A pilot is used to develop optimal kindergarten and school practice with teachers and school management. The qualitative and quantitative results and conclusions are used in longitudinal experimental research designed with 41 kindergartens and primary schools.
