Deeper learning at a distance

Outreach

TLDR

Ben helped create a way for students to share what they were learning when connecting was tough.

High Tech High's Graduate School of Education trains teachers in a Project-Based ("deeper learning") pedagogy.

With so many schools entirely virtual this year, Ben Sanoff recognized that educators' greatest need wasn't just training materials for themselves but ready-made learning materials for their students as well.

So in September 2020, Ben and HTH partners launched Deeper Learning Hub Courses: a library of project-based courses for educators to engage students in experiential learning projects (e.g. the "Science of Tortillas" and "Math is Beautiful"). Teachers have a ready-to-teach curriculum that they can customize to their classes however they wish.

Each course leads up to a final "Share Your Learning" project to empower students through exhibitions, student-led conferences, or presentations with an authentic audience.

The Share Your Learning Campaign has seen over 3,000 educators representing millions of students join in just three years. We can't wait to see how educators use Deeper Learning Hub courses to continue building value in students by giving them a voice in their learning.
