The leading experts in system change and learning, with their school-based partners around the world, have created this essential companion to their runaway best-seller, Deep Learning: Engage the World Change the World. This hands-on guide provides a roadmap for building capacity in teachers, schools, districts, and systems to design deep learning, measure progress, and assess conditions needed to activate and sustain innovation.
Dive Into Deep Learning: Tools for Engagement is rich with resources educators need to construct and drive meaningful deep learning experiences in order to develop the kind of mindset and know-how that is crucial to becoming a problem-solving change agent in our global society. Designed in full color, this easy-to-use guide is loaded with tools, tips, protocols, and real-world examples. It includes:
• A framework for deep learning that provides a pathway to develop the six global competencies needed to flourish in a complex world — character, citizenship, collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
• Learning progressions to help educators analyze student work and measure progress.
• Learning design rubrics, templates and examples for incorporating the four elements of learning design: learning partnerships, pedagogical practices, learning environments, and leveraging digital.
• Conditions rubrics, teacher self-assessment tools, and planning guides to help educators build, mobilize, and sustain deep learning in schools and districts.
Learn about, improve, and expand your world of learning. Put the joy back into learning for students and adults alike. Dive into deep learning to create learning experiences that give purpose, unleash student potential, and transform not only learning, but life itself.
Slow down to go fast. Joanne Quinn and her colleagues take the guess work out of Deep Learning by showing how we can transform our schools into Deep Learning cultures steeped in rigor and joy. This is the rare book that concretely shows how to build classrooms and schools infused with Deep Learning. Chock-full with resources, tips, rubrics, and more, this book provides both a road map and a set of tools that will accelerate the work of educators around the world who are transforming our industrial-age structures into passion-filled deeper learning environments.
At a time when many schools are searching for ways to ensure equity in academic and developmental outcomes, this book will be a helpful guide and an invaluable resource. Dive Into Deep Learning provides educators with practical insights that can be applied at the classroom, school, and district level, to assess the impact of strategies aimed at developing the higher-order thinking skills of students. Written in a clear, accessible manner, this book will be a helpful guide to educators who seek to ensure that they are meeting the needs of all of their students.
Drawing on experiences, expertise, and evidence from a “living laboratory” consisting of educators from across the globe, Quinn and her colleagues paint a clear picture of how to construct Deep Learning in ways that impact all students. The examples shared throughout this book not only demonstrate the different ways in which Deep Learning can be realized, but they also provide evidence of impact in places where it’s actually occurring. This book is a must-read for teams who are collaborating in an effort to make significant improvements in educational settings.
Joanne Quinn, Joanne McEachen, Michael Fullan, Mag Gardner, and Max Drummy have created a critical companion to Deep Learning: Engage the World Change the World. Having done a masterful job laying out the need for educators, schools, and districts to embrace and move to a continuous improving system that embraces deeper learning, the authors have now have taken the critical next step in the process. It’s one thing to document the need; the real trick is providing practical solutions. In this companion, Quinn and her colleagues have given educators a practical guide to implementing lasting change for improvement. This should be required reading (and implementing) in districts throughout the country.
The perennial question of school and system improvement is how do we do this work? We’re convinced of the why—yes, we want to make a profound difference in the learning lives of young people—and we know the what—a knowledge-rich curriculum that attends to the needs of diverse learners—but please explain how to do this work well. This is a page turner for leaders and teachers, laying out with clarity and precision how to create powerful learning environments for deeper learning.
This text is good support material for anyone studying their Teaching Qualification for Further Education.
It provides a thorough evaluation on Deep Learning. The stages of implementation are clear and include a variety of multi-media formats that put the student centre of the process.
