On February 24, Alliance President Bob Wise; Barbara Chow, program director of education at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; and Andreas Schleicher, head of indicators and analysis division at the OECD's Directorate for Education participated in a webinar to provide an overview on deeper learning and how it can increase economic opportunity and civic engagement in order to ensure that American students are rigorously prepared for success in a globally competitive workforce.
Deeper Learning first and foremost prepares students to know and understand core academic content, but it also places equal importance on a student’s ability to think critically and solve complex problems, work collaboratively, communicate effectively and be a self-directed learner, all of which are vital competencies for success in the modern workforce.
In addition to exploring the concepts of deeper learning, Gov. Wise, Ms. Chow, and Mr. Schleicher addressed questions submitted by viewers across the country.
