STEM Curricula in a Technology-Based UDL Framework: A Formula for Narrowing the Middle School Science/Math Achievement Gap? | Technology in EducationTeaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Is there is a way to narrow the middle school science and math gap for children with disabilities? According to one researcher, Dr. Matthew Marino of Washington State University, perhaps it has already arrived, via a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum in a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework underpinned by nascent assistive and instructional technology. "

Social media savvy: The new digital divide? | eSchool News | Technology in EducationTeaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This article refers to social media, however I wrote an article over a year ago about this same "digital divide" - it referred to the difference between those who knew relevant information and those who couldn't discern good from bad.  This is an interesting new way to look at the same topic.

Crossing the Digital Divide: Bridges and Barriers to Digital Inclusion | Edutopia

Crossing the Digital Divide: Bridges and Barriers to Digital Inclusion | Edutopia | Technology in EducationTeaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Now that we’ve reached the second decade of the new millennium, how is digital access changing, and what are the implications for schools?

Some key points:

 

" Today's divide is more nuanced than it was in the mid-90s. Technology is more widespread and prevalent and there have been massive jumps in technological innovation, all of which has created higher expectations for technology at home, at school, and at the workplace."

* 91% of Americans use cell phones- 90% internet-ready phones

* problem is many still only have mobile cell access

* some schools still blocking cell phone use

* "Blake-Plock suggests, prohibiting phones now means "disconnecting the kid from what's actually happening in most of our lives."

* "Digital Inclusion: In some circles, the term digital divide is itself defunct. Instead, using digital inclusion is not only a way to reframe the discourse in a more positive light but also reflective of what access, adoption, and literacy in the digital world really mean today."

UDL Strategies

UDL Strategies | Technology in EducationTeaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"UDL embraces three primary principles based on brain and learning research

1.) Multiple means of representation - the "what" of learning with varied ways that new information can be presented to students.
2.) Multiple means of expression - the "how" of learning with different ways that learners can navigate a learning environment and demonstrate their mastery.
3.) Multiple means of engagement - the "why" of learning with the many ways that students can be engaged in their learning and motivated to learn."
