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!

Infusing Authentic Learning into Extrinsically Bound Schools and Classrooms

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

As a learning community, participants in this session will explore how to infuse authentic learning experiences in school cultures traditionally bound by extrinsic influences. Attendees will be introduced to the "J-Term" program at Westwood High School (MA), and actively participate in a variety of authentic learning experiences with students and educators from Westwood High School. Participants will reflect on their experience throughout these activities in order to craft authentic learning experiences for their own students, whether across an entire school community or simply within their own classroom. Following the morning activities at Hale, this session will take place at Westwood High School.
