The Common Core Standards: How Will They Change Teaching and Assessment?

The Common Core Standards: How Will They Change Teaching and Assessment? | 21st Century Concepts- Student-Centered Learning | Scoop.it

So what are the CCSS and what does this all mean for your child? The Common Core State Standards are a set of expectations for what students should learn during the course of their educational careers. CCSS create a measure of continuity across state lines in the content that will be taught and, more importantly, raises the bar for students and teachers alike. States and territories using CCSS are charged with teaching standards that are often more complex than most states’ current academic content standards—demanding a change in how teachers present information to their students as well as demanding a deeper level of comprehension from the students themselves. How is this achieved? CCSS requires a focus on higher-order thinking questions and skills. For instance, in math class, rather than asking which numbers are even, students will be asked which numbers are even and how do they know that (i.e., the numbers are divisible by two, they have a pair).

Design your Digital Classroom

Design your Digital Classroom | 21st Century Concepts- Student-Centered Learning | Scoop.it

I have just returned from the Illinois Computing Educators Conference where I had the opportunity to facilitate a full day session titled Design Your Digital Classroom. This session wasn't about the ratio of students to machines, nor was it a prescription for using one type of technology. The focus was on how to use technology as a tool for learning to support all learners in the 24/7 classroom. The participants were dedicated, innovative educators from across the state of Illinois, each bringing their own expertise and needs to the group. Each leaving excited about something that worked for them. Differentiated instruction and flexible learning paths work for everyone!

CAST 2012 Summer Online UDL Course

CAST 2012 Summer Online UDL Course | 21st Century Concepts- Student-Centered Learning | Scoop.it

CAST has announced an online course titled,  Universal Design for Learning: A Framework for Addressing Learner Variability.  (Registrations must be postmarked by June 8, 2012)

 

Course Description:


"This Universal Design for Learning (UDL) course is designed to equip you with the ability to design, create, and provide lesson plans that ensure the engagement and participation of varied learners within a high standards-based curriculum. Predicated on CAST’s three principles of UDL—that multiple representations of information, multiple means of expression and action, and multiple means of engagement greatly enhance learner achievement—the module will acquaint you with:

 

> the principles, applications, and research background of UDL

> the convergence of assistive technologies (AT) and UDL

> the ways that digital media can increase the accessibility of core instructional materials and textbooks

> the way that the UDL framework can help you address learner variability

> the way that the UDL framework supports the development of expert learners

> how to use the UDL Lesson Design process to evaluate and redesign lessons"

Preparing for a Different Kind of Middle Grades Classroom

Preparing for a Different Kind of Middle Grades Classroom | 21st Century Concepts- Student-Centered Learning | Scoop.it

Descriptions of this next generation of classroom paint pictures of places where self-directed learning, student choice, and engagement built around enduring understanding are paramount. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is currently being applied to both the development and assessment of Common Core State Standards to measure student achievement. UDL, with origins in the neurosciences, prescribes flexible approaches to learning that are adjusted to meet the individual needs of students.
