Welcome Deeper Learners!

We are excited to welcome you to Westwood, MA at the end of September. The Deeper Learning Boston conference has a rich history. Although this is our inaugural year of the conference, the Deeper Learning movement began in the Northeast region and spread domestically and globally from there. Please enjoy this short background on the conference itself, where we honor "On Whose Shoulders We Stand: A Brief History"

This digital program is for all things DL Boston! Be sure to select one Deep Dive for Day 1 and two Den Talks for Day 2. You will only be able to sign up for one Deep Dive! These sessions have capacity limits and will fill up. To see an overview of the event and session types, check out the event flow.

We can’t wait to see you!

Play as a Path to Reflection

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How does play alter the way we see, hear, and understand the world and our relationships within it? In this session, we’ll consider ourselves, our social contexts & how to facilitate reflection with students through play! Both self-reflection & facilitating reflection with students is essential in developing a critical, justice-oriented teaching practice and curating a thriving learning ecosystem shaped by how our students understand themselves and the world. How can a creative, embodied, playful reflection practice transform how we facilitate and plan instructional experiences? How can reflective play (re)animate our own teaching & learning?
