Ideas on Universal Design for Learning | Ecology of Education | Ecosystems for open education | Scoop.it

"In this Kappa Delta Pi Record article, Susan Trostle Brand (University of Rhode Island/Kingston), Antoinette Favazza (University of Rhode Island), and Elizabeth Dalton (TechACCESS) present ways that teachers can use Universal Design for Learning to make lessons accessible to students with a wide spectrum of learning styles and abilities:

 

> Multiple means of representation – Giving students options for perception, language and symbols, and comprehension"

 

> Multiple means for engagement – A constructivist approach can support active engagement through:

- Recruiting student interest

- Sustaining effort and persistence

- Self-regulation

 

> "Multiple means for action and expression – Varying physical action, expressive skills and fluency, and executive functions

 

> Multiple means of assessing understanding – This includes methods, formats, scope/range level, product and outcome, and feedback"

The future of citizen science: emerging technologies and shifting paradigms

 

Citizen science creates a nexus between science and education that, when coupled with emerging technologies, expands the frontiers of ecological research and public engagement. Using representative technologies and other examples, we examine the future of citizen science in terms of its research processes, program and participant cultures, and scientific communities. Future citizen-science projects will likely be influenced by sociocultural issues related to new technologies and will continue to face practical programmatic challenges. We foresee networked, open science and the use of online computer/video gaming as important tools to engage non-traditional audiences, and offer recommendations to help prepare project managers for impending challenges. A more formalized citizen-science enterprise, complete with networked organizations, associations, journals, and cyberinfrastructure, will advance scientific research, including ecology, and further public education.

Invisible Learning - Toward a new ecology of education

Invisible Learning - Toward a new ecology of education | Ecosystems for open education | Scoop.it

The proposed invisible learning concept is the result of several years of research and work to integrate diverse perspectives on a new paradigm of learning and human capital development that is especially relevant in the context of the 21st century. This view takes into account the impact of technological advances and changes in formal, non-formal, and informal education, in addition to the 'fuzzy' metaspaces in between. Within this approach, we explore a panorama of options for future development of education that is relevant today. Invisible Learning does not propose a theory, but rather establishes a metatheory capable of integrating different ideas and perspectives. This has been described as a protoparadigm, which is still in the 'beta' stage of construction.

Embracing Hybridity: The Merged Organization, Alt/Ac and Higher Education | Ecosystems for open education | Scoop.it

"The article suggests ways to think about the ecology of higher education in a digital age and what role libraries and allied departments in a college or university might play. It proposes that useful steps forward include inviting differently positioned and credentialed individuals into the world of libraries and working together with computing organizations to create temporary structures within which to revise ideas and approaches to our work."

A Teacher’s Field Guide to Parents | Ecology of Education | Ecosystems for open education | Scoop.it

Teachers would be foolhardy to label parents as either good or bad.

Not all parents are created equal and cannot be categorized on a single spectrum. To do so would jeopardize a teacher’s ability to survive. Literally. I mean, I’m talking life or death here.
