Mulitple Means of Expression - Meaning Making: Promoting Deep Understanding of Content | UDL | Scoop.it
Jackie Gerstein shares Wes Fryer's "Making Media for the Curriculum" that illustrates the media that can support multiple means of expression and ways for all leanrers to demonstrate understanding of the content. The following guidelines related to Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression are addressed when learners make personalized meaning of the content: > Use social media and interactive web tools (e.g., discussion forums, chats, web design, annotation tools, storyboards, comic strips, animation presentations) > Compose in multiple media such as text, speech, drawing, illustration, comics, storyboards, design, film, music, visual art, sculpture, or video > Use web applications (e.g., wikis, animation, presentation)Use story webs, outlining tools, or concept mapping tools

Kids Do Well If They Can: Links between UDL and the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach

Kids Do Well If They Can: Links between UDL and the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach | UDL | Scoop.it
"The central question of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) surrounds the idea of barriers to learning: Is the child “disabled”? Or, could we more accurately say that many of our school environments are disabling to children? We understand, through UDL, that environments can disable learning and the significance of identifying and eliminating barriers to access. Further, we understand that children whose learning is obstructed by the environment, can sometimes behave in challenging ways. CPS takes this one step more, encouraging teachers to recognize that even children with no physical or cognitive barriers to learning, may struggle with emotional barriers. These may be difficult to identify at times, but identifying and collaboratively addressing these barriers is as essential to our work as it is to ensure that children can work within their preferred learning style, or have access to assistive technologies. This doesn’t mean that the demands of the environment are wrong – “no hitting” is a fair and realistic rule, for instance – simply that some children don’t have the skills to abide by these expectations and that preparing them to do so is a teaching task, not a task of punishment. If we believe (and I do), that children who fail to be engaged in school work and learning are in some way disabled by their environments, then I feel we must believe the same of behaviour. Rather than labeling children with unkind and unhelpful descriptors such as “unmotivated” or “defiant”, we need to see challenging behaviours as expressions of an inability to meet the demands of the environment." Katia Reid asks: "Do you see the same relationship to UDL that I am seeing? I’d love to hear your thoughts!"
