PLI's Mission and Vision
Profound Learning Institute (PLI)
Profound Learning Institute was formed to advance and disseminate Profound Learning globally, by providing turn-key solutions for schools and educators. These solutions include a comprehensive professional development program with tools and resources that enable teachers to plan, assess and deliver rich learning experiences.
Vision for Global Impact and REAL Change
PLI's vision is to create a movement or revolution within education for Profound Learning by establishing a global network of schools and educators. Based on Metcalfe's law, as the network grows so does the ability of PLI to influence REAL change increase exponentially.

Future Ready Education
To this end, PLI has developed and is in the process of developing a comprehensive closed integrated system similar in philosophy as to how APPLE computers approached the development of their ecosystem of hardware, software and other system structures like their iTunes and APP stores. Everything is designed to work seamlessly together as one integrated solution.
The PLI solution is built on the patented GEENIUS® platform. www.geenius.com
Profound Learning Toolbox
The Profound Learning Toolbox is a complete system of professional development and accreditation for the Profound iCubed Learning™ model. It contains the professional practices with the supportive philosophy and brain research, tools for design rich learning experiences and examples of how other teachers have implemented a particular practice.
The Toolbox also contains tools by which teachers can plan the learning experiences for students. Once the planning is completed the system will automatically generate a student learning roadmap and connect into the assessment framework. As the student tracks their progress within their learning roadmap, the system automatically populates a teacher's dashboard that enable real-time tracking of learning. All of this data will be tracked to generate an overall real-time learning performance report. The idea of a report card will be a thing of the past. Such as system will enable students to work at a pace that is optimal for them, and at all times maintaining a high level of mastery of curriculum outcomes. David Langford over the past 25 years using his Quality Learning framework has demonstrated that students can maintain a high level of autonomy and produce a high level of curriculum mastery.
Communities of Practice
PLI members will be able to create and join various Communities of Practice based on their specific needs and interest. For instance middle school science teachers, elementary school administrators, etc., may want to have their own communities in which they share ideas and practices.
PLI will also create a member's marketplace that will encourage the publishing and selling of learning experience and other relevant learning content. Other subject matter experts will be able to publish and sell high valued content to the PLI membership.
Student Learning and Management System (SLMS)
PLI has begun the development of its next generation fully integrated SLMS that will enable a school to track and manage all the information on student learning. The system will also have the ability to orchestrate the delivery of a learning experience for a student that aligns with the iCubed Learning™ model and supports the development of their Future Ready skills.
Center for Transformation
Every school system should consider licensing a Center for Transformation. The Center for Transformation will be licensed to use the MG Taylor patented DesignShop™ methodology proven for over 30 years as the most powerful process for large scale system transformation. In addition, the Center for Transformation may house a specialized high school program called idSchool™. idSchool™ is a junior and senior high program offering a unique experience of discovery and exploration in designing their world. Design is a foundational, fundamental, and critical skill-set for the 21st century.
