Here are some insights from the author of this article:

 

"UDL Studio offers templates to scaffold you or your students as you create content using multimodal elements, such as text, image¸ video, audio, and animation. You can explore the project library to view previous projects created by UDL studio users.

 

We really like the tips and resources page which asks you to reflect carefully on how the use of the digital tool enhances children’s understanding of text; enriches the reading experience; and represents information in an engaging manner. The plethora of free digital tools include:

 

>> Recording and editing software

>> Video search engines and editing software

>> Sources for images

>> Animation tools"

ICS Learning Group: Understanding Problem-Based Learning

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

PBL strategies can be used very effectively within the language learning class.

 

The traditional learning in the article needs to be redefined in reagrds to real world context because of the integrated learning taking place within todays classroom. For example, CLIL has features which can have attributes (when teaching STEM related material) of inquiry based learning approach.

 

 An adaptive PBL approach can build bridges between the gap of traditional PBL and Inquiry Based learning frameworks.
