Great visual! 

Denver Leigh Watson, M.Ed, LDTC's curator insight, February 8, 2014 11:43 PM

How do you individualize? Does a graphic like this guide instruction, curriculum, lessons or all the above?  Most teachers are visual learners, as are their students; wouldn't it be fun to have students create  personalized graphic like this to outline their own individualized pathway to learning?

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.

5 Apps for Learning and Media Creation for Elementary Students in the Inclusive Classroom

5 Apps for Learning and Media Creation for Elementary Students in the Inclusive Classroom | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"When using iPads with students, consider apps which allow students opportunities to create media which demonstrates understanding and lets them show what they know and how they feel. This is a very engaging, challenging, and meaningful way for students to learn and for teachers to understand and assess what their students comprehend."

> Prezi

> Google Presentations

> VoiceThread

> Domo.GoAnimate

> Wideo

 

Matt has also embedded an audioboo file on this post for those learners who learn best by listening.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 31, 2013 10:38 AM

Matt Bergman shares some excellent tools, strategies and steps in creating meaning and interaction in reading assignments. Discover how you can universally design your reading lessons this year. Here are a few highlights of those steps:

 

> Step 1: Have a central location to place all of your supports in one easy-to-find place. LiveBinders is a great way of helping keep everything organized and together!

> Step 2: Provide multiple ways of reading the assignment (aka Multiple Means of Representation). Give students the option of using paper, PDF's, and audio copies of text. Audacity and AudioBoo are great for producing audio!

> Step 3: Provide vocabulary supports! Use Quizlet to pre-teach vocabulary and provide a way for students to review terms when they are confused or need to study. Provide vocabulary supports for words students don't know like using Visuwords or Shahi.

> Step 4: Engage Students Differently to Find Meaning: use Read-Write-Think's Venn Diagram Maker

> Step 5: Show What You Know: use Padlet as a way for students to answer the essential question of the lesson.
