Building a District Culture of Deeper Learning

Date of broadcast: 
Tue, 08/15/2017

Indicative of a rich curriculum, deeper learning occurs when a district successfully empowers students to synthesize and creatively apply knowledge through critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration. While essential to preparing students for today’s colleges and careers, building a culture of deeper learning can be challenging to accomplish at a district level.

Attend this web seminar to learn more about the importance of deeper learning and how to develop higher order thinking across grades. Two administrators from Delaware’s Colonial School District will discuss how they are building a culture of deeper learning through innovative curriculum strategies and digital resources, and outline some best practices for doing the same in any district.

Topics will include:

  • How to use technology to equip teachers to identify digital resources that build critical thinking
  • Curriculum strategies that can narrow the achievement gap and prepare students to thrive after graduation
  • Data and insights from Colonial School District’s deeper learning initiative
