Big Picture redesigns education in the United States by generating and sustaining innovative, personalized learning environments; it would partner with the Internationals Network for Public Schools, which provides quality education for recently arrived immigrants. Together they would establish a Deeper Learning Equity Fellows community that will build a cohort of practitioners focused on developing policies, programs, and practices that assure deeper learning opportunities for all young people, especially those traditionally underserved. In bellwether communities, this project would draw attention and leadership to ensuring that deeper learning outcomes are fostered and provided to all students, a key aspiration of the field.

for identifying, cultivating, and showcasing exemplary schools to advance deeper learning  
Over the past three years, the Program provided project support to the Deeper Learning Network (DLN), a "network of networks" consisting of ten school reform models totaling some 500 public schools across the country. The DLN has helped make the case for the viability of deeper learning, offering examples of it in action and providing locations for site visits by policymakers. We will provide "tie off" grants to the DLN in order to refocus our funding on research that addresses policy reform needs, development of new assessments of the harder-to-measure deeper learning competencies, and capacity building for educators to understand and make use of student achievement evidence.
