FOUNDRY ANNOUNCES NEW OFFERING FOR SCHOOLS TO TRANSITION FROM TRADITIONAL TEACHING TO DEEPER LEARNING
(Project-based, Proficiency-based, and Personalized Learning)

  • Foundry Transform™ is a unique, comprehensive process and platform approach that engenders human and technological change.

  • Foundry’s award-winning platform allows teachers to easily manage the mounds of data yielded by Deeper Learning methodologies while managing the complexities of interdisciplinary learning.

  • Guided by the Foundry platform, enhanced with self-help resources and personal coaching, Transform allows educators to design their school’s vision of Deeper learning, and master planning, standards, assessments, and evidence evaluation while easily documenting learning.

MILWAUKEE, WI, AUGUST 15, 2019 - Foundry, a leading provider of educational Deeper Learning software and services, today announced a new offering called “Transform.” A process and platform approach to taking schools where they are now to school or district-wide Deeper Learning, the Transform process builds consensus and commitment across the school’s learning community, creating an action plan based upon the school's beliefs, needs, and goals. Schools can then confidently implement the essential practices required to reach and sustain their Deeper Learning vision.

With Transform, school leaders and educators learn by doing as schools use the Foundry platform with their own school’s specific Deeper Learning approach — a fully coached, hands-on, rewarding learning experience. Foundry’s Transformation Science* team supports and guides the team throughout the whole process.

“We know from experience that just acquiring software alone is not an effective and sustainable approach to Deeper Learning,” said Camille Mortimore, Ph.D., Foundry Chief Learning Officer. “We draw upon our deep experience in instruction, school leadership, and Deeper Learning implementation to support our customers as they make the important decisions to Deeper Learning,” noted Dr. Mortimore.

William Mortimore, Foundry CEO, ascribed Transform's approach as a differentiator from other Deeper Learning management solutions. “We created our Foundry platform to ensure that schools have freedom of choices and full flexibility to use it to support their own vision of Deeper Learning, but those choices can be complex. That is why our Transform approach guides our schools in creating their own transformation to Deeper Learning. Our platform doesn’t make the choices for them” observed Mortimore. “And that makes all the difference in supporting teachers as they build expertise in this work,” said Mortimore.
