D4: Dive Deeper using the 4Ds: How vision, pedagogy, organizational structure and relationships will drive your school to your deeper learning? In this session we will deeply explore stories of change, develop your change model for schools and for your city. Using a case-study analysis of Holon, Israel that shifted their city to deeper learning, attendees will examine how diagnosis of organisational vision, pedagogy model, organizational structures and relationships will help you scale your work beyond school walls. During this session you will get ideas on how to use PBL not just as a pedagogical practice but rather as the standard for how work gets done in all facets of educational community within a city. We will explore questions like: What do you have to think about when you want to scale up? How do you expand, and still maintain the professional standard? How do you build professional capacity? How do you use the local government as co-designers in the design of deeper learning projects? What are the intersections between PBL and the community and how do they influence one another? How to create the mindset that the whole community is involved in PBL where everyone wins? How to open schools, change existing schools - What factors are influenced by this?And how to create a common vision, then break it down year by year, and choose outcomes for each year. Attendees will walk with a five-year plan to scale deeper learning.
