Recorded: December 6, 2018

Transforming your school from a traditional approach to Deeper Learning methodologies like PBL and Personalized Learning is a daunting task! Any school leader approaches this work with lots of questions and knows there are lots of possible answers. But which are the best? Where do we start? What are the most powerful levers for change? How will we help teachers be confident, engage learners, and track the mountains of data? And how do we prepare for such significant change?

All those questions and more will be addressed in this content-rich webinar designed for school leaders who are emboldened in their resolve to provide students with 21st century learning and skills.
