Teaching to Diversity: The Three-Block Model of Universal Design for Learning

Teaching to Diversity: The Three-Block Model of Universal Design for Learning | Support Teacher Candidates | Scoop.it

"In her book Teaching to Diversity, Dr. Jennifer Katz synthesizes the research, and 16 years experience of teaching in inclusive classrooms and schools, to provide answers to several questions:

 

> How do I make inclusion work for ALL students?

> What are the foundational best practices of a truly inclusive learning community?

> How does one create such a community?

 

The author pulls together, in an organized way, the key pieces of what she learned and implemented from exploring and using universal design for learning (UDL) in her classrooms. Katz describes a three-block model of universal design and suggests a step-by-step approach to implementing it in the classroom."

Personalization: Assessment AS Learning

Personalization: Assessment AS Learning | Support Teacher Candidates | Scoop.it

Assessment AS learning (Personalization) is based in research about how learning happens, and is characterized by learners reflecting on their own learning and making adjustments so that they achieve deeper understanding. The teacher’s role in promoting the development of independent learners through assessment as learning is to:


> model and teach the skills of self-assessment

> guide learners in setting goals, and monitoring their progress toward them

> provide exemplars and models of good practice and quality work that reflect curriculum outcomes

> work with learners to develop clear criteria of good practice

> guide learners in developing internal feedback or self-monitoring mechanisms to validate and question their own thinking, and to become comfortable with the ambiguity and uncertainty that is inevitable in learning anything new

> provide regular and challenging opportunities to practice, so that learners can become confident, competent self-assessors

> monitor learners’ metacognitive processes as well as their learning, and provide descriptive feedback

> create an environment where it is safe for learners to take chances and where support is readily available

 

Reporting in assessment AS learning is the responsibility of learners, who must learn to articulate and defend the nature and quality of their learning. When learners reflect on their own learning and must communicate it to others, they are intensifying their understanding about a topic, their own learning strengths, and the areas in which they need to develop further.

Jigsaw Cooperative Learning Technique - ReadWriteThink | Support Teacher Candidates | Scoop.it

In this strategy guide, you will learn how to organize students and texts to allow for learning that meets the diverse needs of students but keeps student groups flexible. This works well with non-fiction topics and is useful for covering lengthy text passages, e.g., History.  Students tend to work on task better when they know their work will be used to teach and inform others.

There have been some recent conversations about technology and teacher training in my reader lately. I have a ton of admiration for the education programs in BC but I, too, have been a bit critical of universities and colleges for not offering more education technology courses for their future graduates but I also wonder what role we play in supporting/hindering pre-service teachers using edtech.

How to Create a Portfolio with Evernote (Education Series)

How to Create a Portfolio with Evernote (Education Series) | Support Teacher Candidates | Scoop.it

By Rob Van Nood

 

"I was using portfolios with limited success and spending a lot of time on them, until Evernote came into the picture.

 

"When I first started researching options, I was coming across a lot of companies that were really expensive, charging a lot for each student’s use. I also knew that we needed an app for mobile devices that would make it easy to capture and document paperwork and I wasn’t finding that in most of the tools I was evaluating. Evernote was free, had an app for virtually every device, and we could get started right away.

 

"After creating accounts for the students [learn more about how to get set up in the Portfolio Forum discussion] capturing and organizing information became insanely easy. Here is how we are using Evernote in the classroom:"
