Made this today. I think this is a major part of what we are missing in education. We focus too much on teaching kids stuff and not enough effort on helping them define who they are.

I have a spreadsheet where I can't get #copydown  to recognize the formulas in a sheet. Has anyone run into an instance where this happens? Even better - has anyone had the same issue and fixed it?

Deeper learning is simply what highly effective educators have always provided: the delivery of rich core content to students in innovative ways that allow them to learn and then apply what they have learned. Rigorous core content is at the heart of the learning process; true deeper learning is developing competencies that enable graduating high school students to be college and career ready and then make maximum use of their knowledge in life and work.

The basic concepts of deeper learning are not new to education; indeed, they are routine educational practice for many accomplished individual teachers and educators and some high-performing schools. These successful practices are now being confirmed by increasing bodies of evidence underscoring the necessity for deeper learning as an integral part of the education process.

Deeper learning prepares students to

know and master core academic content;think critically and solve complex problems;work collaboratively;communicate effectively; and be self-directed and able to incorporate feedback.- See more at: http://deeperlearning4all.org/about-deeper-learning#sthash.7EX0BTDZ.dpuf
A new study by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) provides a comprehensive look at schools utilizing deeper learning strategies and structures to educate their students.

Story
Tagline
Dad - Husband - Assistant Superintendent for Technology and Learning Maine 207 in Park Ridge, IL Google Certified Teacher, Administrator, & Trainer.
Introduction
I work with a team of experts to design, maintain, develop, and secure technology across the district.  I am focused on providing a simple and effective way to foster learning through the use of technology, when appropriate. Through effective instruction and demonstration of resources our students, parents, community, and staff can all improve their skills to be more efficient in today's world.

I also serve as President for SETconnections which is a nonprofit organization that seeks to to promote an overall understanding of technology and its benefits and to then assist in utilizing technology to improve the field of education with an emphasis on special education.

I have completed a Doctorate from Roosevelt University, Chicago in Educational Leadership and Organizational Change, a Masters from Roosevelt in Teacher Leadership, and my undergraduate work was in Secondary Education with the ability to teach Science and Music. 

I began working at Maine Township in 2007.  Before coming here I was a Technology Coordinator at Conant High School in Hoffman Estates, IL where I had also taught Science and Music since 1996.  Other teaching experience includes working as an adjunct professor at Roosevelt University and presenting at various conferences locally and around the country.  I have also worked as a Youth Director at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Wheaton, IL and as a consultant for Riverside Publishing.

I have a beautiful family at home.  My wife, Annel, is a Bilingual teacher in Glendale Heights, IL and teaches a 1st/2nd grade Spanish Bilingual loop.  I have 2 wonderful children Maria and Henry - who both teach me every day that there is still a lot to learn about this world and myself.

I truly believe that each of us has a special purpose and that we all have something special to offer the world that no one else has to give.  Education can be one of the tools that we use to find and develop that gift.  What we do with it is up to us.
