In terms of deep learning, learners conduct in-depth mining and processing of information and experience in real learning situations, realize the transformation and transfer of knowledge, improve the ability to solve problems, and ultimately promote the realization of learning goals and the development of advanced thinking ability. This paper first analyzed the concepts and characteristics of deep learning, and compared deep learning with surface learning. Secondly, according to the connotative characteristics of deep learning theory, the general process of deep learning was given. Finally, a deep learning activity design with four stages was proposed. The four stages constitute the cyclic chain of the deep learning process. The learning process is highly operable and can provide practices for teachers in specific teaching classes.
