Overview
Big Picture redesigns education in the United States by generating and sustaining innovative, personalized learning environments; it has partnered with the Internationals Network for Public Schools, which provides quality education for recently arrived immigrants. Together they have established a Deeper Learning Equity Fellows community; this grant will expand the program evaluation, and enable greater Fellow participation in the annual grantee meeting. 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.

Grants to this Grantee
for a pilot study of school site visits that exemplify deeper learning  
Big Picture Learning creates innovative learning environments through design, research, and educator training. This grant would enable its principals to experiment with different ways to offer policymakers and business leaders site visits to Big Picture schools so they can see firsthand instructional designs and student practices that advance deeper learning. This project supports the Program’s strategic goal of giving policymakers experiences that make the case for deeper learning; moreover, it would test the possibility that, with some capacity building, school personnel could conduct site visits independently, rather than having them coordinated through a separate grantee, as in the past.
for identifying, cultivating, and showcasing exemplary schools to advance deeper learning  
This is one of ten grants to members of the Deeper Learning Network to showcase exemplary schools, nurture the deeper learning movement, prepare for school site visits by decision makers, and integrate Common Core standards into their curricula.
