The Freedom Stick is FREE - Be Ready for Universal Design Next Academic Year

The Freedom Stick is FREE - Be Ready for Universal Design Next Academic Year | Relating psychology to Universal Designs for Learning | Scoop.it

Ira Socol from SpeEdChange introduces "The Freedom Stick".  Here is some of his thoughts on what we need to do to empower learners from this time forward.

 

"It is time for Universal Design for Learning to be put in the hands of every student. It is time for every student to be given the opportunity to discover and experiment with a range of tools which can support their own individual differing communication needs – not just in school, but throughout their lives.

 

...it is now deep into the second decade of the 21st Century and the technologies and realities of the world have changed. All around the planet people carry with them – often in their pockets – highly individualizable devices which can support all the different ways humans learn and communicate. And it is time for schools to catch up with this reality.

 

The new and improved “Freedom Stick” (v.2.3.2) offers students and schools the ability to arrive at this ‘technological present’ at essentially zero cost."

 

Ira provides a comprehensive outline of what the Freedom Stick has and why you may want to give it to all your learners.

COLSD - Concerns on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities

COLSD - Concerns on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities | Relating psychology to Universal Designs for Learning | Scoop.it

Principal Investigators of the Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities wrote this letter to express some concerns about the present participation of students with disabilities in online learning. They are beginning an investigation about the concerns that are outlined in this letter.  Here is just a excerpt from this letter that outlined these concerns in nine broad areas.

 

"Several months ago we accepted the challenge of finding answers to important research questions about how online learning environments can be optimally designed and implemented to be accessible, engaging, and effective for all students, including students with disabilities. To accomplish this goal, the Center is conducting research to identify and verify trends and issues as well as describe potential positive outcomes and negative consequences related to participation of students with disabilities in online learning.'

 

While careful research ahead will be necessary to investigate these concerns, we think the entire educational community, from producers to consumers, should be aware of the issues that have come to our attention:

 

1.  Complaints

2.  Inconsistent Policies

3.  Accessibility and Universal Design

4.  Teacher Training

5.  Monitoring and Accountability

6.  Reasons for Placement

7.  Social and Emotional Supports

8.  Lack of Guidance

9.  Inequities

Art's Emotions: Ethics, Expression and Aesthetic Experience

Art's Emotions: Ethics, Expression and Aesthetic Experience | Relating psychology to Universal Designs for Learning | Scoop.it
Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews is an electronic, peer-reviewed journal that publishes timely reviews of scholarly philosophy books.

 

Damien Freeman takes on the monumental task of developing a theory of aesthetic experience that accounts for its emotional aspects, its ethical aspects, and the role certain kinds of aesthetic experience can play in a fulfilling life. Despite the enormity of the task, he does an excellent job in so few pages. There are, of course, problems, but the issues that I take with the argument are largely in the details and not in the big picture.

 

Freeman's main argument is that aesthetic experience can uniquely offer a form of what he calls a plenary experience of emotion. This particular kind of experience is significant to the aesthetic experience because it deals with our emotions as a whole (what he calls the whole emotional economy rather than just parts of the emotions) and thereby offers a unique kind of experience that plays a significant role in our overall thriving emotional life.

 

Freeman's argument takes as its context the expressivist theories of Tolstoy, Collingwood, and Wollheim; but I believe that he advances his argument to a more comprehensive account of the ways in which we engage with art emotionally and why it is good for us to do so.
