Keynote Dr. Santiago Rincón Gallardo
How can Deep Learning take roots in classrooms and spread to large numbers of schools? Drawing on existing knowledge on deep learning, effective instructional practice, and large-scale pedagogical change, Santiago offers five ideas to bring deep learning to life in classrooms, schools, and educational systems. Santiago is involved in multiple projects in the US, Canada, and Latin America. His work in these countries involves documenting good work underway and providing focused recommendations, deepen student learning, and cultivate professional capital across entire educational systems.
Santiago is a firm believer in deep learning and its power to change lives and the world.
