Strategies for Universal Design for Online Learning

Strategies for Universal Design for Online Learning | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

A big difference between universal design and disability accessibility is that universal design strategies help all people, not just those with disabilities ... I use captions on TV and movies frequently although I do not have a hearing disability; it helps me understand better primarily when people have accents.

When students curate, they own the learning. This is my latest blog post with some of the highlights from a recent collaborative student curation project I supported in my district.

Mika Auramo's curator insight, March 7, 2014 12:07 AM

Kuratointi liitettynä esim. blogiin syventää opiskelua ja kehittää tiedonhallintaa ja sisältöjen suodattamista.

Nancy White's curator insight, March 7, 2014 12:10 PM

My latest blog post describes an 8th grade student curation project. Through curating, students experienced the freedom to learn about what most interested them, and to follow their questions in the direction that they needed to go, as they explored topics of the 19th century social reform movements in their social studies class.

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

That we have evolved our favorite forms of communication is obvious without more than simply watching our students walk through the hallways. It would be easy to demonize social media and each medium that it provides for human interaction. But it would be educationally valuable to embrace it, turning it into an opportunity for our students to develop an appreciation for the advanced cognitive skills they employ on a daily basis. Why not study the highly visual communication models connecting the thoughts that mean the most to them with the social networks where they live their lives?

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 8, 2014 3:15 PM

Visual literacy matters


Visual literacy is the ability to:

  1. Process and make meaning of information presented in an image.
  2. Communicate our own ideas through principles of design.
  3. Create our own messages that capture our visual thinking in a way that conceptualizes problems to given solutions.
Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 28, 2014 9:00 PM

Visual Literacy has a new emphasis in the Australian Curriculum. This is certainly a good article to give ideas for embedding some good quality practice in digital learning.
