In this module, The IRIS Center walks you through the five steps to create a learning environment that challenges and engages all learners.

 

"This module examines the three principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and discusses how to apply these principles to the four curricular components (i.e., goals, instructional materials, instructional methods, and assessments)."

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core | Coastal GLRS | Scoop.it

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is used to design curriculum, lessons and instruction based on the diversity of the learners in their classroom.

 

How can UDL guide personalize learning to meet the Common Core?

 

When a teacher understands his/her learners through the UDL lens, he/she creates a flexible learning environment and provides opportunities for learner voice and choice. When lessons are designed using the UDL model, the lesson includes goals, methods, materials, tools, and assessments to reach and support the maximum amount of learners in the classroom.

 

Learners can use this model to help them understand how they learn best and what learning path they can take to become an independent expert learner, leveraging their natural abilities in the process. This process helps the learner create their personal learning profile that is understood by both teacher and learner.

 

The importance of this strategy is that both the teacher and the learner understand who the learner is and how they learn best. The learner and the teacher uses the UDL lens to personalize learning. So what does that look like?

 

An example of an 8th Grade unit on the Civil War serves as an example along with two students who can meet a number of CCSS when they choose and use the tools to support their learning.

 

Explore our new website, Personalize Learning (www.personalizelearning.com), to learn more about the research, models and educators who are personalizing learning.

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.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 6, 3:01 PM

Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.

Giving Students Feedback With Kaizena (Voice Comments) Tutorial

Use your voice to give students feedback about their papers in Google Docs. I've only played with this a little bit so far, but I'm really excited to be able to use Kaizena to give my students feedback this year. Being able to add links to resources and reuse those links for other students is so helpful. If you have questions I'm on twitter @JenRoberts1 and the guys who make kaizena are @kaizenaFB if you have feedback for them, or email founders@kaizena.com

I usually endorse Edutopia, their resources, and the examples of good practices. Not today though. The disability awareness activities shared in their article, touted as promoting school-wide inclusion do nothing of the sort!

Having students put on a blindfold, use a wheel chair, or tie a hand behind their back in order to "experience" what it is like to have a disability creates a false sense of what life is like with a disability.

These awareness activities do not show others what it is like day in and day out to see the look of pity in others' eyes, to have to overcome environmental and attitudinal barriers, to hear the patronizing remarks, and to experience employment discrimination.

Nor do these activities highlight the commonalities we all share, the extraordinary gifts we each possess, or the skills and talents we bring to our communities.

What can well-meaning educators do instead? Value the diversity in classrooms, speak up so others may come to understand we all benefit when every child actively participates in general education classrooms, encourage ongoing conversations with students who are marginalized so we may realize the work we still have to do.

Edutopia, I have come to expect cutting edge leadership from you. Please report true examples of inclusive education. Thank you!

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Coastal GLRS | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.
