Accessibility to text is yet another reason to engage struggling readers with the iPad. Subtext (in the App Store) does much of what's mentioned here and more.

The Six Steps to Personalize Learning workshop can be personalized for your school, district, or region. We come to you to guide the process. Several of the ideas and strategies in the steps include:

 

>> Universal Design for Learning

>> Class Learning Snapshot

>> Personal Learner Profile

>> Class Learning Toolkit

>> Redesigned learning environments

>> A repository of transformed lessons and projects aligned to CCSS

>> Inquiry-based strategies

>> Skills to choose the appropriate resources and tools to support teaching and learning.

 

As facilitators, we coach you in person and online as you apply the steps in your classroom. After the workshop is over,  you can continue ongoing discussions in an online Community of Practice (the Personalize Learning Collaboratory) with other educators from around the world.

Elizabeth states that she is on a mission to make UDL a mindset. I have been on that mission for over a decade and gladly join her. Here is what she says about her mission:

 

"I’m on a mission to bring this UDL mindset to the teams of teachers I work with — and to help create a district-wide framework to make daily instruction accessible for all students in inclusive settings. I’ve taken some small steps this year, and I’m excited for the steps ahead!"

 

Thank you, Elizabeth!

Open Educational Resources (OER).

OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license, such as the Creative Commons Attribution license required by DOL, that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.

Open educational resources include full courses and supplemental resources such as textbooks, images, videos, animations, simulations, assessments, … Find OER (http://open4us.org/find-oer/)

 

A core concept for understanding OER is that they are learning materials freely available under a license that allows them to be:

 

- Reused  - Revised  - Remixed  - Redistributed

UDL Accommodations: ELL Student

UDL Accommodations: ELL Student | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

Michelle Meyer presents some excellent UDL strategies that can support the ELL Student. She describes a learner who has limited English proficiency and offers options to support that learner using the 3 UDL Principles with reference to specific UDL Guidelines and Checkpoints.

 

According to The Knowledge Loom, English language learners refer to students who have a first (home, primary or native) language other than English and are in the process of learning English. The article  states there are at least three factors that can affect the amount of time it takes for a student to attain cognitive and academic sufficiency in English:

> Age

> Immersion in English

> Similarity to English
