Welcome to NPDLConnect!

maxdrummyIt is with a great deal of pleasure that we welcome you to NPDLConnect. As the name of this blog suggests, our intent is to bring together ways of thinking and working, conversations, processes and assets so that we can further support the great work that is happening in New Pedagogies for Deep Learning schools globally.
The blog will feature content available in the public domain, and also links to members-only content (signified by this symbol MO) hosted on our Deep Learning Hub.

Today we are also excited to launch a number of new and revised tools in our Capacity Building section of the Deep Learning Hub ( MO). Among these are 6 Capacity Building Modules, a Parent Engagement activity, and leading Learning Conversations – a document to help school leaders have focussed deep learning design conversation with teachers. We will host short webinar workshops to unpack these, and other new documents over the coming weeks.

First and foremost, however, this blog is about YOU and your learners!

We would love to hear your stories, your ideas, your triumphs and challenges, and come together to create a powerful collaborative dialogue about all things NPDL.

So our first prompt: What are the three most powerful ideas, enablers or actions that you have engaged in to bring NPDL to life for your learners?boxmodel

Post a response below or feel free to email me with further thinking: connect@npdl.global

If you would like to contribute a longer article, contribution guidelines are available here.

To ensure you stay up to date with all that will happen through NPDLConnect, we suggest subscribing via email in the box at the right of this page.

Let’s go deep!

A Book by Joanne McEachen & Jane Davidson, Ph.D.

Making Important MeasurableMaking the Important Measureable: Not the Measureable Important

McEachen and Davidson have combined their knowledge to create a whole system approach to measuring what is important for each learner, teacher, district, state or country. McEachen’s 30 years in educational leadership, combined with Davidson’s expertise in organizational psychology and evaluation, have led them to create a new, trackable system for measuring learning that synthesizes the full range of evidence to give a clearer picture of success.

Utilizing their whole system approach to changing outcomes for all learners, they give clear direction for knowing where each learner is and what they need next, and provide a powerful resource for those working to measure student development of deep learning outcomes.
