๐Ÿ’ฌ Signals of Deep Learning

Replied to Cows of the Future by Tom Barrett (Dialogic Learning Weekly #71)
Think of a topic outside of school that you have a deep understanding of. What are the signals that indicate you have a deep knowledge and understanding of that topic?
I find the idea of ‘deep Learning’ fascinating. I feel that deep learning is often when you know that you don’t know. Often when you start out on a new topic you get a little bit of knowledge and you think that you know it. However, this is not deep until you dig down and get to the point where you realise you can’t know and that your knowledge will always be limited.

Take for example my recent deep dive into Global2. I have worked with, written about and presented on WordPress. However the further I went the more I realised that there were so many nuances that I had never considered. This has been taken to a whole new level with my wonderings about the #IndieWeb.

I therefore find Fullan’s reference in A Rich Seam to deep learning being associated with learning goals problematic. Although such goals can guide the learning, i think deep learning is often directed by fuzzy goals.
