The 3DBear Deep Learning Academy provides educators super powers to motivate their students to learn deeply. In just five 90-minute sessions, teachers will learn how to engage students in immersive learning experiences, whether teaching in class or remotely. They will be able to prepare lessons, create custom content, and deliver instruction to students that will enable student voice, shift responsibility for learning to students themselves, and meet rigorous learning objectives.
3DBear’s aim is to help teachers inspire young people to reach beyond their potential and unleash their creativity. 3DBear creates professional partnerships with educators and districts to offer unique, positive ways to bring their teaching and visions to life.
The 3DBear Deep Learning Academy has five sessions: (1) Academy Kickoff, (2) Integrating SEL into everyday lessons, (3) Practical PBL, (4) Engaging Lesson and Curriculum Design, and (5) Showcasing what you have learned. The Academy draws deeply on Finnish education practice, adapting it to US teachers and students in order to provide teachers with the capabilities to motivate their students to learn deeply.
