Deeper Learning MOOC – January – March 2014

deepthinkingThis morning while scanning my RSS feeds I discovered the Deeper Learning MOOC coming this January. I like the way deeper learning is defined:

  • Master core academic content
  • Think critically and solve complex problems
  • Work collaboratively
  • Communicate effectively
  • Learn how to learn (e.g., self-directed learning)
  • Academic mindsets

The Deeper Learning MOOC is going to feature the work of several innovative programs and schools including Big Picture Schools and High Tech High. I’m particularly interested in learning how the structures of these models can transfer to public education and how we make deeper learning systemic. Right now, most of us would agree we have pockets of deep learning in our schools. Our big challenge is a systemic upgrade. I’m looking forward to learning and sharing over the next few months.
