Personalize Learning: Toolkit

Personalize Learning: Toolkit | Teaching with Tech for Special 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.

Ways to Evaluate Educational Apps

Ways to Evaluate Educational Apps | Teaching with Tech for Special Education | Scoop.it

Maybe more significant than evaluating the app itself is evaluating how the app supports instruction that infuses technology to create a powerful learning environment. The Arizona Technology Integration Matrix is a rubric for teachers to assess their level of technology integration across five elements of meaningful learning environments.

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic | Teaching with Tech for Special Education | Scoop.it

While neuroscience hasn’t yet radically changed the way we think about teaching and learning, it is helping to shape educational policies and influencing new ways of implementing technology, improving special education, and streamlining day-to-day interactions between teachers and students. While there is still a long way to go before we truly understand the science of learning and how to use those findings in the real world classroom, it’s important to highlight some of the key ways that neuroscience is changing the classroom of today for the better.

LetterReflex – Overcoming Letter Reversals by BinaryLabs is learning tool by the creators of Dexteria. Letter reversals are to be expected by any young child learning the alphabet, the cause is a lack of directionality. To address directionality, the first concepts that need to be understood are the directions of “right” and “left.” LetterReflex helps children overcome common letter reversals in a game format that is inviting, engaging, interactive and user-friendly.
