Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guides the process to personalize learning using the UDL principles.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, June 28, 2013 9:16 PM

The UDL 2.0 Guidelines can assist anyone who plans lessons/units of study or develops curricula (goals, methods, materials, and assessments) to reduce barriers, as well as optimize levels of challenge and support, to meet the needs of all learners from the start. They can also help educators identify the barriers found in existing curricula. You can use the UDL Guidelines to help you determine your learners strengths, interests, and challenges and how they:

 

> prefer or need to access and process information.

> prefer to express what they know.

> like to engage with the content.

 

When learners know how they prefer or need to access information, engage with the content, and express what they know and understand, then they take responsibility for their learning.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, June 28, 2013 11:47 PM

UDL Principles guide learners to understand how they learn best. They determine how they prefer or need to access information, engage with content, and express what they know.

The Twitter Essay.....A Tweet as "writerly concision" <---LOVE THIS!

 

To quote @Jessifer: "I’ve recently experimented in my composition classes with an assignment I call the Twitter-essay, in which students condense an argument with evidential support into 140 characters, which they unleash upon a hashtag (or trending topic) in the Twitter-verse. Tweets often attempt to convey as much information in as few words as possible. A tweet could be seen, then, not as a paragon of the many potential horrors of student writing, but as a model of writerly concision. In composing their Twitter-essay, I have students proceed through all the steps I would have them take in writing a traditional academic essay, including brainstorming, composing, workshopping, and revising. I also have them consider and research their audience, the Twitter members engaged in discussion around a particular hashtag. Finally, I have them work dynamically with the Tweets of their peers, responding to them on Twitter and close-analyzing them in class. I ask the students to consider their word-choice, use of abbreviation, punctuation, etc. To model the activity for them and to give them a sense for the shape of a Twitter-essay, I compose my instructions for the assignment in exactly 140 characters and post them to Twitter."
