Deborah McNelis, M.Ed's curator insight, August 10, 2013 3:21 PM

Researchers at University College London found that when 3-year-olds have a regular bedtime they perform better on cognitive tests administered at age 7 than children whose bedtimes weren't consistent. The findings represent a new twist on an expanding body of research showing that inadequate sleep in children and adolescents hurts academic performance and overall health.

Universal Design for Learning and the Myth of Average

Universal Design for Learning and the Myth of Average | Early Learning | Scoop.it

"I don't know about you, but I love TED talks. (TED = Technology, Entertainment, Design.) Although I have known about and preached Universal Design for Learning (UDL) since I began this blog, I could have never explain it as well as Todd Rose did in his TED Talk, "The Myth of Average". Thank you, Todd, for providing this concept so beautifully. (This is 18 minutes, but worth every one!)"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 14, 2013 7:13 AM

This post discusses Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a tool that is helpful to know about since the Common Core requires that we need to ""provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them." In addition it provides access to a TEDTalk by Todd Rose, where he discusses "The Myth of Average", a talk that will make you re-think how you view your students (and ask yourself "What is average when it comes to my students?").

In addition Glenda Hampton Anderson provides an excellent overview of UDL, perfect for someone new to these concepts or as a review. Many links are included which provide access to some of the best sites for materials on Universal Design for Learning.

Brad Reitzel's curator insight, July 4, 2014 10:31 AM

Our #alcpqp group is loving TED talks. Here is one about Universal Design that will help us all get acquainted!
