ZaidLearn: Use Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for Writing Learning Outcomes | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

I have many articles on Bloom's Taxonomy that I use to develop course aspects aligned with assessment of student outcomes. These templates would assist in the UbD design of lesson plans within that context. Thank you Zaid.

SurveyMonkey - Education, School, and Academic Online Surveys

SurveyMonkey - Education, School, and Academic Online Surveys | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it

Whether you need to understand the factors that shape faculty satisfaction, or feedback from students on a new course offering, an online survey can reveal data that will improve programs, processes, and overall achievement. Parents, students, teachers, professors, and administrators can all benefit from professional education surveys.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

I use SurveyMonkey to teach my Graduate students. They have excellent examples of the different types and methods to use. Low cost for the research data conversion to down load. I recommend my fellow teachers and colleagues to give this a look. You can translate this site to English and other languages.

 

Yes, your survey can be the target language.

ASCD Field Notes: Using Prediction, Performance, and Feedback to Engage the Brain in Note Taking

ASCD Field Notes: Using Prediction, Performance, and Feedback to Engage the Brain in Note Taking | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it
Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

It's what Judy Willis (2010) calls "individualized achievable challenge": the brain's drive to a larger goal, prodded along by a chemical feedback system that releases dopamine with each small success. Key to triggering this process is the chance to make an explicit prediction, followed by explicit, immediate feedback....Read more...

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

 agree and would go farther that ALL "Brick and Mortar" institutions have to adjust to be functional in the 21st Century educational platforms. The traditional educational enviroment is no longer tradtional...Universities in Asia have started to adjust to this aspect. A four year education was not only what you learned for your future career but how to get along with other people from other cultures. Therefore, schools will have to rethink all aspects of the "brick and Mortar" schools.

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it

Implementing the principles of universal design in online learning means anticipating the diversity of students that may enroll in your course and planning accordingly. These ten key elements will greatly enhance the accessibility and usability of your course for students with and without disabilities.

 

Step 1: Develop content first, then design.
Step 2: Provide simple, consistent navigation.
Step 3: Include an accommodation statement.
Step 4: Choose CMS tools carefully.
Step 5: Model and teach good discussion board etiquette.
Step 6: Use color with care.
Step 7: Provide accessible document formats.
Step 8: Choose fonts carefully.
Step 9: Convert PowerPoint™ to accessible HTML.
Step 10: If it's auditory make it visual; if it is visual make it auditory.

 

See explanation of these steps on www.ualr.edu

A father shares how the UDL lens helped in developing a transition plan for his daughter, Brooke. Discover how each UDL principle was used in developing that plan.  Here is just the first:

 

Principle 1: provide multiple means of representation

 

>> Connected Brooke with volunteer opportunities at a dog rescue and kennel to explore hands on what it means to be in a career working with animals, and used a guitar, youtube videos, and iPad apps for pianos, to explore her interest in music

 

>> Explored www.alife4me.org for community career ideas.

RocketList - Tools and Videos to Inspire Students to Learn Real-World Skills of the Future | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it

RocketList premiered in Octoboer 2012. The site focuses on 21st century career preparation, with specific attention on the real-world business skills of the medium-range future: coding, design, engineering, storytelling, science, critical thinking and marketing.

 

Visitors may select any of the fields to learn about sites that provide free instruction, such as Code Academy, Physics.org, or Gamestar Mechanic. In addition, video interviews of professionals in each field offer students insights into the types of connections, skills, and pathways that enabled them to succeed in their work. A blog also highlights the work of young people who excel in their drive and creativity.

 

Site organizers also promise forthcoming "challenges and opportunities for students and schools  to demonstrate their prowess and encourage their growth."
