UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core | education | 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.

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns | education | Scoop.it

"When you’re standing in front of a classroom of students who’re not quite sure they even want to be in your class, much less pay attention to what’s being said, things like neuroscience, research studies, and teaching the way the brain learns are an abstraction.

Yet, brain-targeted teaching can engage and excite students because it taps into factors that stimulate the brain, grab the attention, and set the stage for learning."

Great comments in here and how it links to neurobiology.

Helen Teague's curator insight, March 19, 2014 12:48 PM
strong>Referencing Beth Dichter's insight:What if we were able to design our curriculum to support the way the brain learns? Would our students be more engaged in class? Learn about this new model, Teach the Way the Brain Learns, in this post. There is a short discussion about some of the concepts as well as six brain targets, each of which includes a brief neuroscience explanation as well as a "translation" so that you will understand how to implement each target in your classroom. What are some of the targets? Brain Target 1: Establish the emotional climate for learning What does this mean? "Stress impedes learning." Make connections with students and then begin the lesson. Brain Target 2: Creating the Physical Learning Environment What does this mean? The physical space impacts our students. Changing the space may help them learn. What changes could you make in your classroom? Four additional brain targets are provided. You may also want to check out the website Brain Targeted Teaching (http://www.braintargetedteaching.org/) where you will find additional information as well as sample units that utilize this method (and a template to create your own lessons).

From the article: 

 "On the basis of research in several disciplines, including the study of how human capacities are represented in the brain, I developed the idea that each of us has a number of relatively independent mental faculties, which can be termed our “multiple intelligences.” The basic idea is simplicity itself. A belief in a single intelligence assumes that we have one central, all-purpose computer—and it determines how well we perform in every sector of life. In contrast, a belief in multiple intelligences assumes that we have a number of relatively autonomous computers—one that computes linguistic information, another spatial information, another musical information, another information about other people, and so on." - HG
