High Tech High Graduate School of Education strives to create an adult learning community that links teacher education to school reform; it offers programs such as a Masters of Education degree, teacher credentialing, and an education leadership academy. High Tech High would conduct such activities as hosting a national conference for deeper learning practitioners, promoting integration of student assessment results into classroom practice through improvement science, and training a cadre of principals. High Tech High’s activities contribute to the development and growth of a distinct field of practitioners and leaders committed to deeper learning outcomes, a key element in field building.

Grants to this Grantee
for an online course on deeper learning and a conference for practitioners
This grant would enable the High Tech High network, part of the Program’s Deeper Learning Network, to create a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) as an entry point for teachers worldwide who want to learn more about classroom practices that promote deeper learning. This support would also subsidize a conference on a High Tech High campus in spring 2014 aimed at illustrating the goals, policies, and practices that advance deeper learning on a large scale.
for a national conference for deeper learning practitioners
With this funding, High Tech High, one of our Proof Points school networks, would host the first annual national conference on deeper learning. Its goal will be to build a grassroots support movement for teachers and school leaders who want to deliver deeper learning to their students. All our Proof Points school networks will help lead the conference, along with the Beryl Buck Institute for Education, a professional development provider highly aligned with deeper learning.
