Our mission is to design innovative learning solutions to transform lives and meet the demands of the 21st century learner.
Services provided and products designed by Learning Dimensions surpasses those of other educational consultant companies in that greater intent is made to integrate the five Dimensions of Learning (i.e., confidence and independence, mastery of skills and strategies, use of prior and emerging experiences, knowledge of the content matter, and reflection or “metacognition”). When learners obtain greater mastery of the Five Dimensions of Learning, they become better able to confront complex problems and create inventive and original solutions to those problems. They become empowered to make a difference in their communities and serve a greater good. Our motto is: “Learning Transforms Lives.”
Learning Dimensions’ first clients consisted of a diverse group of non-for-profit organizations interested in making an impact in education through inquiry-based, academically rigorous, thought provoking, and service-oriented learning experiences for students. A major challenge, however, was that these organizations did not have the expertise and resources required to assist teachers with creating transformative learning experiences within their classrooms.
With this understanding, Monica Swope, the founder and Principal Educational Consultant for Learning Dimensions, decided to create an educational consultant company that would assemble a collection of highly qualified and specialized consultants to develop innovative learning environments and solutions. Services provided by Learning Dimensions, such as strategic educational planning, innovative curriculum solutions, and professional development options, places the type of resources and experiences needed to create and implement transformative learning experiences in the hands of clients. The services that clients can expect from Learning Dimensions can best be described in the following statement:
[Learning Dimensions] is always at the apex of developments in education. [Learning Dimensions] is visionary, but practical and results-oriented. [Learning Dimensions] high standards will help any organization to achieve its objectives under-budget and on time. Brava!
