This article presents evidence about the level of association between work with active pedagogies and student commitment or engagement. Specifically, it analyzes the effect that the role of the teacher as activator from a deep learning perspective has on the engagement of secondary students at schools in Uruguay that are part of the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL) network. This network aims to foster deep learning as a means of interesting students and teachers in the learning process through the acquisition of the global competencies required for the challenges of today and the future.
