Deeper Learning at B-E SD

Image Describing the Deep Learning Compentencies that are listed on this page

The Deep Learning Competencies, better known as the 6 C’s, are the skill sets each and every student needs to achieve and excel in, in order to flourish in today’s complex world. These competencies form the foundation for the New Measures and NPDL teachers use the Deep Learning Progressions to assess students’ current levels in each of the six Deep Learning Competencies. They combine this with information about student achievement, interests, and aspirations to get a clear understanding of what each student needs to learn. (https://www.npdl.global/)
