Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 27, 2013 2:51 PM

Mr. Borman surveyed 17 students in one of his classes and discovered that there were a few needs when it came to reading comprehension. He has put together "A Toolbox of Reading Comprehension Apps" that can support the needs of his students in his UDL classroom.  For each app, he has outlined "What it does", "How students can use it" and the "UDL Principles".

 

Check out the Toolbox:

> iBooks

> Popplet

> SyncSpace

> Odyssey (by Homer)

> Toontastic

> Explain Everything

> Ulysses

> Subtext

> Prezi

 

Thank you Mr. Borman!

Jane Strunck's curator insight, April 29, 2013 11:11 AM

Mr. Borman used Edmodo to survey his student's learning preferences and based on the results, identified apps that would support reading comprehension and promote UDL in his classroom.  Would love to know how students responded to the options.  Nice process, Mr. Borman!

Oh, just read this! Carey's comment puzzles me. Maybe she is working for the rival company?

This is delicious to look at.

This info graphic shows multiple ways that our 2e kids can process, retell, and "show" what they know without ever having to put pencil to paper. At last, light at the end of the tunnel for our very visual kids with dygraphia!

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths | 21st Century Learning and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

Here are the "Top 8 Apps" for digital storytelling picked by Inov8. They point out that these apps encourage creativity, provide support and remediation for students with special needs, and can be used in many different classroom settings. "They are motivating, engaging and will encourage learners to demonstrate their strengths."

 

"For students with special needs, the creativity of digital storytelling apps has allowed us, as educators, the opportunity to observe and understand the strengths of our students. New apps are primarily hands-on and highly visual, and provide an opportunity for those learners who struggle with traditional instructional methods to take advantage of their abilities and strengths. Professionals in special education want to use apps in many different contexts, integrated into global curricula, across disciplines, as well as be able to insert their own content. Ultimately we want to customize, individualize and personalize the use of these digital storytelling apps for our students."
