Ten Fun Ways to Use YouTube Videos in an Online Literature Class | Faculty Focus

Ten Fun Ways to Use YouTube Videos in an Online Literature Class | Faculty Focus | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it
I have always enjoyed watching YouTube videos and when I noticed that some of the videos dealt with serious literary topics and had re-enactments of Shakespeare plays, I began to wonder if I could not incorporate them into my literature classes.

Marie Schoeman's insight:

Most learners can benefit from visual inputs to lessons. YouTube provides a rich resource for teachers.

Customizing your teaching to suit each child makes eminent sense. Kids are different, they learn differently, so we should teach them differently, right?

Personalize Learning: Toolkit

Personalize Learning: Toolkit | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

How do you personalize learning? First you need to know what personalized learning is. Here is a new site that provides resources, research, models, examples, and stories. This page provides a toolkit that can help your organization begin personalizing learning to meet the needs of all learners. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides the framework in personalizing learning for all learners. UDL also guides the design of the Personal Learner Profile[TM]. It provides the UDL lens to select the appropriate tools for the Personal Learning Backpack[TM] that helps them access information, engage content, and express what they know. UDL guides how Personalized Learning meets the Common Core.

Effective Strategies for Teaching English Language Learners

A review of ideas for English Second Language teachers!...

 


Via Trish Johnson
Marie Schoeman's insight:

This article focuses on effective ways teachers can help ESL students overcome barriers to meaningful instruction. Teachers can use strategies based on social interactionist theory, such as that of Vygotsky, to create classroom conditions that foster learning by modeling, scaffolding and helping students to construct understanding, with the eventual goal of becoming independent thinkers and problem solvers. The author identifies four loads as barriers to meaningful instruction: cognitive load, culture load, language load and learning load; and she states teachers must be skilled at lowering these barriers and sparking student interest and curiosity by developing a creative, wise and passionate curriculum.

Marie Schoeman's curator insight, February 14, 2013 9:12 AM

Education will have to take account of the changing context created by technology and will have to respond with creative methods such as these to keep children engaged and stimulated. Teachers have to compete with many external stimuli for the attention of children. This method also allows for more individual support and differentiation.
