In this episode we have Michael Fullan, author of many books on education and the global leadership director with New Pedagogies for Deep Learning being interviewed by Jo Anderson, co-executive director of the Consortium for Educational Change. Michael discusses the right drivers and the wrong drivers in education and how using the right drivers like collaboration and capacity building are the keys to student success. He discusses the coherence framework from his book that he coauthored with Joanne Quinn and how that system approach can lead to success for teachers and students. He also shares how deep learning is impactful for students, but especially impactful for students who are disconnected from school.
