Engage the World Change the World

Deep Learning has claimed the attention of educators and policymakers around the world. This book not only defines what deep learning is, but takes up the question of how to mobilize complex, whole-system change and transform learning for all students.

Deep Learning is a global partnership that works to: transform the role of teachers to that of activators who design experiences that build global competencies using real-life problem solving; and supports schools, districts, and systems to shift practice and how to measure learning in authentic ways.

This comprehensive strategy incorporates practical tools and processes to engage students, educators, and families in new partnerships and drive deep learning. Inside you’ll find:

  • The Deep Learning Framework
  • Vignettes and case studies from K-12 classrooms in 1,200 schools in seven countries
  • Guidance for reaching disadvantaged and differently abled students
  • Sample protocols and rubrics for assessment
  • Videos demonstrating deep learning design and innovative leadership in practice

Through learning partnerships, learning environments, new pedagogical practices, and leveraged digital skills, deep learning reaches students as never before — preparing them to be active, engaged participants in their future.

About the Authors

Deep Learning: Engage the World Change the World addresses the missing learning momentum we need so that students, educators, and parents carry on learning beyond school. With this deep learning mindset, as new truths and contexts emerge and new competencies are required, we will all be equipped to master them.

Patrick Miller, Ontario School Principal

Deep Learning: Engage the World Change the World provides insight into the potential when we keep the student experience at the center of our thinking. When we create conditions that engage teachers and learners in a reciprocal relationship, the outcomes are not only higher achievement and wellbeing, but also the door is opened to begin to address historic inequities for some groups of students.

Cathy Montreuil, Chief Student Achievement Officer, Assistant Deputy Minister, Student Achievement Division
Ontario Ministry of Education

Deep Learning captures the essence of what is pure joy for me as a learner and a leader in education. Our journey as part of the DL collaboration reenergized our teachers, students, and community to really enable students to thrive academically and socially. The collaborative inquiry cycle has brought the passion back into leading and learning by encouraging curiosity and ways to test our theories and strengthen our practices.
