Access, Engage, and Express: The Lens for Teaching and Learning

Access, Engage, and Express: The Lens for Teaching and Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Access, Engage, and Express, based on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, is the lens for teaching and learning for all learners.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
Access, Engage, and Express (TM) is the lens for understanding how anyone learns best. The reason we came up with these three words was to help educators easily understand their learners using this lens. We want Access, Engage, and Express to be an integral part of their daily approach to teaching and learning.  Using Access, Engage and Express was developed from the Universal Design for Learning® (UDL) principles that are based on neuroscience and how we learn.

"UDL is the framework for Personalized Learning."

Why do teachers and learners need a lens for learning? This post will share the importance of understanding how you learn best. Access is about how you transform and process information into useable knowledge. Engage is how you best engage with content. Express is how you demonstrate what you know and understand. If you use this lens, you and your teacher become partners in learning.

Discover the Learner in Every Child

Discover the Learner in Every Child | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
To understand how a learner learns best, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can be the lens that reduces barriers to learning and optimizes support to meet needs for all learners.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
This Part 3 in a Collaborative Blog Series on Learner Agency with the Institute for Personalized Learning.
Each learner has variability in how they access and process information, how they engage with content and how they express what they know and understand. Using the UDL lens of Access, Engage and Express to understand learners can not only help the teacher better design instruction but can also offer the learner a way to tell their story about how they learn best. When the learner uses the UDL lens to share how they learn, it validates them as a learner.
UDL is the framework that applies to ALL learners and as a means for creating personalized, learner-centered environments where each learner can develop agency.

UDL Guides Personalized Learning

UDL Guides Personalized Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guides the process to personalize learning using the UDL principles.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

The UDL 2.0 Guidelines can assist anyone who plans lessons/units of study or develops curricula (goals, methods, materials, and assessments) to reduce barriers, as well as optimize levels of challenge and support, to meet the needs of all learners from the start. They can also help educators identify the barriers found in existing curricula. You can use the UDL Guidelines to help you determine your learners strengths, interests, and challenges and how they:

 

> prefer or need to access and process information.

> prefer to express what they know.

> like to engage with the content.

 

When learners know how they prefer or need to access information, engage with the content, and express what they know and understand, then they take responsibility for their learning.

UDL Principles guide learners to understand how they learn best. They determine how they prefer or need to access information, engage with content, and express what they know.
