With Universal Design for Learning as their chisel, says Elizabeth Stein, teachers can sculpt super learning environments to meet every student's needs.

Elizabeth Stein creates a wonderful analogy of using UDL to create learning environments for all learners. Here is a brief exerpt from her blog on this subject:

 

"I’d like to offer my version of a teacher’s chisel–a professional tool that can help us to successfully create optimal learning environments. This tool is called the Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

 

And UDL can be such a powerful chisel. If we stay mindful as we use it, we can not only create one sculpture at a time, like the artist. We also have the power to create a classroom full of masterpieces –simultaneously. It’s simply amazing."

UDL should be one of the cornerstone understandings of all teachers.

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a  great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.

 

"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.

 

This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"

 

Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!

This is a good summary of the UDL and the Flipped Classroom teaching approach that can be applied within your 21st Century learning environments.

This article provides some "brain science" and discusses how the flipped classroom can be applied to the Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

Great article connecting UDL/brain science and experiential learning. It even integrates the "Three What " reflection method.
