Starting with the End in Mind | CTQ

Starting with the End in Mind | CTQ | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Starting with the end in mind has become a mantra for lesson planning.  Sometimes called “Backward Planning,” or “Lesson Design,” this technique is being exposed to teachers in professional development sessions for years. I first read about backward panning through Grant Wiggins’s work.

Nice article on UbD.

The National Center on UDL is pleased to announce the launch of a new UDL Series session, UDL Implementation: A Process of Change.

 

Please join us starting on Thursday, January 10th to learn about the UDL implementation process. In this session, CAST and district leaders describe the five phases of UDL implementation and offer examples of how districts apply the principles of UDL to decision-making and planning.

Moving Up with UDL in Higher Ed

Moving Up with UDL in Higher Ed | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Moving Up….UDL in Higher Education I’ve talked about how UDL can be used in the public school setting; the value of UDL, the how of UDL, the things to consider when making systemic changes to implement UDL, and a variety of methods of using UDL. But, as I’ve learned this week (and suspected all along), UDL can be used at the Higher Education level as well!

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

I support UDL at all levels of learning and especially ELL. Please review this web site for more information: http://www.udlcenter.org/

 

I also support UbD at all levels in regards to ELL outcomes. This fits more with the English inquiry-based learning within the authentic learning environment.

The author provides some advice on how UDL can be implemented in higher ed and then provides examples of where UDL is in colleges along with a set of resources these colleges us to implement UDL.

 

"To implement UDL at the college levels, perhaps it should be incorporated into the college mission, purpose, strategic plan.  To be effective, obviously resources and trainings must be provided to professors."

 

Here is some of the author's final thoughts on the advantages of implementing UDL principles at all levels of education.

 

"However, as more and more institutions of higher education begin to implement UDL framework principles, students will be better prepared for their futures as they learn how to learn and how to engage in their own learning process.  It makes sense that K-12 school systems and institutions of higher education move towards implementing UDL together."

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | 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.

"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Implementing the principles of universal design in online learning means anticipating the diversity of students that may enroll in your course and planning accordingly. These ten key elements will greatly enhance the accessibility and usability of your course for students with and without disabilities.

 

Step 1: Develop content first, then design.
Step 2: Provide simple, consistent navigation.
Step 3: Include an accommodation statement.
Step 4: Choose CMS tools carefully.
Step 5: Model and teach good discussion board etiquette.
Step 6: Use color with care.
Step 7: Provide accessible document formats.
Step 8: Choose fonts carefully.
Step 9: Convert PowerPoint™ to accessible HTML.
Step 10: If it's auditory make it visual; if it is visual make it auditory.

 

See explanation of these steps on www.ualr.edu

We have been doing this for the past three years.  Establishing appropriate standards for course delivery, look and feel, and consistency goes a long way in establishing the foundation for a good learning experience for students.

UDL Accommodations: ELL Student

UDL Accommodations: ELL Student | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Michelle Meyer presents some excellent UDL strategies that can support the ELL Student. She describes a learner who has limited English proficiency and offers options to support that learner using the 3 UDL Principles with reference to specific UDL Guidelines and Checkpoints.

 

According to The Knowledge Loom, English language learners refer to students who have a first (home, primary or native) language other than English and are in the process of learning English. The article  states there are at least three factors that can affect the amount of time it takes for a student to attain cognitive and academic sufficiency in English:

> Age

> Immersion in English

> Similarity to English

A Glog that Tells the UDL Story

A Glog that Tells the UDL Story | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

"No two students are the same, no two students process information the same, and therefore students deserve to have information presented in multiple ways, students should be encouraged to showcase their knowledge in multiple ways, and students should be motivated in multiple ways." Melissa tells the story of UDL and includes video of UDL and the three principles along with the tools that can help support a diversity of learners in the classroom:   the CAST Lesson Builder, UDL Curriculum Self-check and Book Builder.
