Harvard Education Letter - Bringing UDL into the Mainstream

Harvard Education Letter - Bringing UDL into the Mainstream | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

For the past several years, new teachers joining the Bartholomew (Ind.) Consolidated School Corporation have been encouraged to watch a video introducing the preferred method of teaching in the district. Rather than highlighting a single approach, however, the video is all about encouraging teachers to use varied ways and materials to present new information and to assess learning, be it aurally through talking iPads, visually through doodles on whiteboards, creatively through art projects and games, or by using old-fashioned pen and paper. That’s because the preferred method of teaching in Bartholomew County is UDL, or Universal Design for Learning.

AAEEBL - Home for the World ePortfolio Community | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

he Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL, pronounced "able") is a non-profit, professional organization for the world eportfolio community. AAEEBL's mission is to deepen learning and to transform institutions with electronic portfolios.

 

Background
ePortfolio community leaders recognized in 2008 that eportfolio, as a technology, and as a body of theory and practice, had emerged as a promising influence and direction for education. They believed in the value of eportfolio for learning, assessment and life-long career success. These leaders envisioned a professional association to serve the emerging field and to underscore the scholarship and implementation of eportfolios for learning. AAEEBL was formed in 2009, anchored in the foundational roots of the eportfolio community. Since its founding, AAEEBL affiliations and collaborations have reached a wide array of initiatives, projects and organizations.

Apple’s top 80 apps for doctors, nurses, patients

Apple’s top 80 apps for doctors, nurses, patients | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

Based on the more rigorous surveys and reports, it’s still true that clinicians are generally more eager adopters of both mobile devices and the medical apps that run on them. The persistent challenge for many iPad-toting physicians, however, is where to turn for medical app recommendations. In its efforts to be at least somewhat helpful on that front, Apple has slightly reworked and beefed up its now more visible section of “Apps For Healthcare Professionals”, which appears to be consistently featured in the AppStore’s medical section.

Language Curriculum Design and Socialisation by Peter Mickan - Multilingual Matters

Language Curriculum Design and Socialisation by Peter Mickan - Multilingual Matters | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

Language Curriculum Design and Socialisation by Peter Mickan.

 

This book applies social theory to curriculum design and sets out a program for language curriculum renewal for the 21st century. It includes many examples of text-based curricula and describes a plan for curriculum renewal based on texts as the unit of analysis for planning, for teaching and for assessment. Underpinned by Halliday’s semiotic theory of language, the book combines the theory of language as a resource for meaning-making with learning language as learning to mean.

 

The curriculum design constructs curriculum around social practices and their texts rather than presenting language as grammatical and lexical objects. This work will provide teachers, teacher educators and curriculum planners with a curriculum model for teaching children and adults in different contexts from preschool to adult education as well as serving as a practical guide for students.

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

"Meaghan Roper, a junior at Burlington High School, shares a similar story with the iPad. When Meaghan was six years old, she was diagnosed with a visual impairment. In the eighth grade, she started to notice a decline in her vision. She sought out surgery to repair or delay her vision decline, and while successful, the procedure did not hold for very long.

 

A Transformative Experience

 

Meaghan recalls her first moments with the iPad and how she and her liaison discovered the variety of new opportunities that this one device presented. One of the first things she used was the ability to invert the colors of the screen. The iPad gives users the opportunity to read predominantly black text on a lighter screen, or to invert the colors and overlay white text on a black screen. This one feature, Meaghan recalls, was "transformative" in her learning of what the iPad could offer her educational experience.

 

Apps for Every Need

 

In Meaghan's day-to-day operation of the iPad, she uses several applications to manage her content. It doesn't take her too many apps to get through her school day. She's thankful that, along with transitioning to the iPad, Burlington also married the Google Apps for Education suite with this device. She finds ease in accessing Google Docs from multiple devices and knowing that her work will always be safe, secure and not dependent on a machine's functionality."

 

Read more about how Meaghan uses apps to support her learning!

Through the use of assistive technology special needs students are able to learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively, and in their lives beyond school in the 21st century.

 

The blog following blog by Andrew Marcinek, Instructional Technology Specialist, writes about how iPads are being used as assistive devices. He describes the iPad as a opening for many, showing the potential of the iPad as an assistive technology and how it can change learning for students with impairments. Andrew writes about meaghan and how she used the iPad and applications throughout her schooling. Its worth a read.

Waterloo researchers create ‘world’s largest functioning model of the brain’ | KurzweilAI

Waterloo researchers create ‘world’s largest functioning model of the brain’ | KurzweilAI | 21st Century Medical English Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

A team of researchers from the University of Waterloo have built what the claim is the world’s largest simulation of a functioning brain.

 

The purpose is to help scientists understand how the complex activity of the brain gives rise to the complex behavior exhibited by animals, including humans.

 

The model is called Spaun (Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network). It consists of 2.5 million simulated neurons. The model captures biological details of each neuron, including which neurotransmitters are used, how voltages are generated in the cell, and how they communicate.

Educational Origami is a blog and a wiki, about 21st Century Teaching and Learning.


This wiki is not just about the integration of technology into the classroom, though this is certainly a critical area, it is about shifting our educational paradigm. The world is not as simple as saying teachers are digital immigrants and students digital natives. In fact, we know that exposure to technology changes the brains of those exposed to it. The longer and stronger the exposure and the more intense the emotions the use of the technology or its content evokes, the more profound the change. This technology is increasingly ubiquitous. We have to change how we teach, how we assess, what we teach, when we teach it, where we are teaching it, and with what.


Its a tall order, but these are exciting times.
