Seven Ways to Increase Student Engagement in the Classroom

Lee Hall's curator insight, September 12, 2014 3:52 PM

I plan to use the 3-2-1 method in my very next class. Great ideas.

Great graphic that summarizes things we've all heard before, but helps keep them in mind so we really do utilize them with students.

UDL / Digital Resource Toolkit

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 12, 2015 10:04 PM

I came across an article in THE Journal called 6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL. This sent me to the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation where I found a range of excellent materials on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The link provided here will take you to a page where they have three toolkits:

* Action and Expression Digital Resources

* Engagement Digital Resources

* Representation Digital Resources

Each toolkit is 6 - 7 pages long and shares digital tools that will help you each of the three areas.
For example, when you open up the Action and Expression Digital resources you will find the following categories:

  - Options in the mode of physical action

  - Options in the means of navigation

  - Options for accessing tools and assistive technologies

  - Options in the media for communication

  - Options in the tools for composition and problem solving

  - Options in the scaffolds for practice and performance

  - Options that provide effective goal-setting

  - Options that support planning and strategy development

  - Options that facilitate managing information and resources

  - Options that enhance capacity for monitoring progress

You can download each file as a pdf and there is a hot link to each suggested tool.

The site also provides additional information on UDL, including links to a number of other resources that provide an excellent overview and includes videos as well as text based materials.

You may also find the original article (linked to above) of interest. Here is one quote:

"Just like a worksheet can be a barrier and a print text can be a barrier, technology can be a barrier for some students as well. UDL is not about technology but it is about using technology in an intentional way.”

Commonwealth of Learning - Aptus - "Classroom without walls"

Commonwealth of Learning - Aptus - "Classroom without walls" | Technogogy | Scoop.it

A large number of learners and teachers in the developing world operate in "unconnected" environments – unconnected to the power grid and to the Internet. There needs to be a different approach to extend them support.

COL’s idea of a "classroom without walls" can make a contribution. We can imagine a situation where a learner in a typically unconnected environment can access a lesson in a Learning Management System (LMS), and complete an assignment, with her/his credentials intact and available to the teacher. Learners can also participate in a socializing process through visiting and commenting on a blog related to the learning materials and courses.

Testing commercial products available and at a cost of USD100.00, COL has provided a prototype which includes technical information to assist in assembling this environment, which will enable a teacher to run a classroom without those ubiquitous walls.

Paul Avila's curator insight, November 30, 2013 9:33 PM

This chart can be used for students as a guideline for the right mindset in dealing with their education. Students need the right mindset to achieve in schools and avoid the mental barriers preventing them from growth. I would probably use this chart in the beginning of the school year to show what I expect from my students.  This could be useful for the less motivated students in the class.
