Deep Learning


The book we are reading ("Reinventing Project-Based Learning" by Bross and Krauss) has a great resource appendix. One part of the appendix, Deep Learning, goes beyond blogs and wikis into web sites that give students more information and also the online applications for them to process this information. Deep learning occurs when students have the opportunity to evaluate and analyze information they find on the internet. Then they can take this information to create their own products to show deeper learning. This wiki should help you navigate this idea.
