Profound Learning Ecosystem
PLi is developing and maturing a comprehensive patented web-based ecosystem similar in philosophy as to APPLE computer's approach to their system of hardware, software, iTunes and APP stores. The ecosystem concept is that every component of the ecosystem is designed to work together seamlessly as one integrated solution.
The Learning Orchestration System (LOS)
PLi's next generation fully integrated LOS supports the creation of individualized learning roadmaps that can be tracked in real-time by the teacher. The LOS will also have the ability to orchestrate the engagement of students in learning experiences that align with the iCubed Learning™ model and supporting the development of their Future Ready skills.
The Profound Learning Model
The Profound iCubed Learning Model, a 21st century learning model, can be viewed as a three layered cake with Quality Based Learning, Inquiry Based Learning and Design Based Learning. The icing on the cake are the 12 Essentials needed to be FUTURE READY. Learn more
The Association for Profound Learning
PLi is comprehensive system of professional development and accreditation for the Profound "iCubed" Learning™ model. The PLi membership gives teachers access to the professional teaching practices, with the supportive philosophy based on brain research, tools for designing rich learning experiences and examples of how other teachers can implemented these student learning practices.

The Learning Exchange
The LOS enables teachers to create rich learning experiences that can be "packaged" and shared or sold through the PLi "App" Store. Automatically, these "Apps" will link to the student's journey map (state curriculum).
PLi, under the leadership of JW Wilson is committed to incorporating the latest relevant brain research into it's ecosystem. Designing learning experiences that are brain compatible will only enhance the delivery of Profound Learning.
Seminars and Consulting Services
PLI, will offer numerous live seminar events to help train educators around the world in the deployment of Profound Learning.
PLi has developed a number of specialty programs designed to develop that Future Ready skills of students and specifically the ability to design, innovate and create.
The Learning Experience Exchange
The LOS enables teachers to create rich learning experiences that can be "packaged" and shared or sold through the PLi Learning Experience Exchange or "App" Store. Teacher's will be able to deposit and acquire learning experiences, modify them and disseminate them to their student's capacity maps.
PLi is developing a global journey map that will enable sharing of learning experiences between teachers from around the world. State and national curriculums will map into this global journey map.
Neuroscience and The Advanced Learning Institute
JW Wilson is the Executive Director of The Advanced Learning Institute, an organization which researches, develops and implements science-based learning programs. Mr. Wilson is also the author of the soon to be published book "Cracking the Learning Code", the culmination of over twenty-five years of scientific research into the basis for how to accelerate the speed of learning and the rate of behavioural change.
The key finding of this research is that in each of us there is a genetically implanted Learning Code, which must be switched on before we can create long-term memory or lasting behavioural change. The research that lead to the discovery of the Learning Code has been derived from the fields of neuroscience, genetics, molecular biology, quantum physics, complexity science and chaos theory. The results have yielded groundbreaking, new information on how we learn and change behaviour. JW's passion, in fact his crusade, is to bring this essential knowledge to the world. The innovative Learning Code research is now being used by organizations including the country's largest employer organization, and the group that implements leadership training for NASA.
At PLi, we have integrated 24 elements from the Learning Code into our Profound Learning Model. As a member of PLi's Profound Learning Research Institute, JW Wilson provides valuable insight that helps us to refine our professional practices and take into account the latest discoveries on how the brain works.
The Roller Coaster Adventure is an example of how PLI uses neuroscience in our Educational Ecosystem.
The interesting fact is that by basing education on the latest biological and neuroscientific research, we have been able to create learning environments that are dramatically more natural, efficient and joyful than traditional classrooms, which depend mainly on Stand and Deliver methods.
Science Based Education Matches the Students Biology
Science based education matches the student's biology with the most effective way for the student to select into their brain structures the knowledge that will help them be successful, innovative and Future Ready in the fast paced, ever changing 21st Century.
As you will see in the video, because education based on neuroscience is so much more meaningful and exciting, the student's learning becomes much more self-directed. Motivated, self-directed learning is one of the most vital assets a student can have when they enter the real world. This is because we now live in a world where information is doubling at the phenomenal rate of once every 18 months. Therefore to lead a successful life, the ability and desire to learn new knowledge have become the primary assets that one can possess.
Neuroscience Creates More Fulfilling, Efficient and Joyful, Classrooms
In this video, not only are the students directing their own learning and having a blast doing it, but the teachers are enjoying the educational process so much more because it is so greatly fulfilling to them. This is because the teacher's role now shifts from being a mechanistic deliverer of information to becoming a trusted mentor, who helps the student develop a powerful sense of self and competency in the subjects covered.
There are a lot of very detailed scientific nuances in this video. If you would like to learn more about the Profound Learning Institute and how we are using biology and neuroscience to transform education please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (321) 308-5327.
In the school represented in this video, 80% of the students are achieving excellence (the highest level of standing), compared to 20% excellence in the rest of the province. This is a dramatic 4xs difference. The neuroscience approach is clearly making a profound impact.
*Please note while these students went on a discovery trip to real roller coasters. The same neurological structures of discovery can be activated in other less expensive ways. PLI 's neuroscientific based Educational Ecosystem is design to work not only for the affluent school districts but also in those less financially fortunate school districts.
Professional Development and Seminars
At the core of the PLi transformation strategy is professional development. The PLi team brings decades of experience of training over 40,000 teachers and administrators around the world. PLi recognizes the need to provide both live hands on training seminars along with online just-in-time learning.
Teachers and administrators are encouraged to become members of the Association for Profound Learning which includes comprehensive online training using the GEENIUS LOS. Just as the LOS is able to orchestrate customized learning for students similarly the LOS can be used to customize the professional development of teachers.
The GEENIUS LOS provides a powerful tool for administrators to bring alignment of professional practice within schools and districts while reducing stress and fear and increasing JOY.
Profound Transformation Workshop (PTW)
The PLi team has years of experience in working with educators and administrators in system redesign and transformation. Over the years PLi has developed processes around "Profound Transformation" that enable large groups of educators to be involved in design experiences that result in Organizational Brilliance that can only come from these kinds of experiences.
Typically a PLi Profound Transformation Workshop takes 2-4 days and involves anywhere from 20-50 participants. The work product that emerges from a PTW will not only articulate a clear implementation strategy for a district or school but will have a high level by-in by the participants of the PTW.
