Infographic: Deeper Learning

This past summer, schools had the opportunity to nominate themselves or others for consideration as a Deeper Learning School. The call was answered!  School leaders filled out detailed questionnaires and the Getting Smart team conducted in depth interviews to gather additional information from dozens of schools who exhibited strong alignment with the Hewlett Foundation’s Deeper Learning competencies.
In the end, twenty schools were selected to represent everything from rural to urban schools, from district to charter schools, but all boiling down to schools that debunked common myths about Deeper Learning. While the schools may look different from the outside, they most definitely  share a common purpose—to give ALL students the opportunity to learn in a Deeper Learning environment.

In the coming weeks, we look forward to sharing these school profiles with our readers because they make the strongest case for Deeper Learning—these schools create environments and experiences by virtue of which students master core academic content, think critically and solve complex problems, work collaboratively and communicate effectively, develop academic mindsets and graduate as confident self-directed learners.

Deeper Learning is not news for me . I belong informally to a group of high school teachers in which we meet once a month or more striving to work and look deeper into our teaching practice to meet the challenges of 21st century teaching and learning. Indeed, I was struck by this well put together visual poster connecting all the dots of Deeper Learning . I would love to have this infographic. Is it possible?
