UDL in the Classroom - Reaching All Students with Technology - Classroom 2.0

UDL in the Classroom - Reaching All Students with Technology - Classroom 2.0 | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Lisa Parisi will be presenting on UDL in the Classroom at the 2012 Social Learning Summit.  Here is a description of the presentation that will be filled with great strategies in using social media in a UDL classroom.

 

Session Description: We, as educators, are faced with many different challenges. We have a large amount of curriculum to cover, tests our students must do well on, and a public who believes one size fits all works in the classroom. Our students are getting burned out quickly. And one size fits all does not take into account the learning disabled child, the ADHD child, the hearing impaired child, the bored child, the struggling reader, the math phobic child, the artistic child, the leader, the follower, or any other "out of the norm" student (whatever that might be). Web 2.0 tools afford us the opportunity to help all students meet the curricular requirements, demonstrate knowledge, learn, and enjoy school. Learn how to use collaborative tools such as Google docs, presentation tools like Glogster, and research tools such as Discovery Streaming to enliven your classroom. Today, there is no excuse for not reaching all children. Come hear how easy it is."

Infographic: Left vs. Right Brain

Infographic: Left vs. Right Brain | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

If you ever wondered why you act the way you do, the answer may lie in which side of your brain you tend to use more. Allthough they're generalizations, popular theories suggest that right-brain people have different skills and preferences than those who are left-brain people. How do these differences impact you? Find out in this infographic.

The 9 Types of Collaborators - Infographic

The 9 Types of Collaborators - Infographic | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

If you approach your collaboration strategy with a “one-size-fits-all” mentality, your rollout is far more likely to fail. There exist all different types of users that each prefer to work in their own unique ways – some prefer to work in groups, others in silos, some on iPads, others on pen and paper. They also have different needs for the solution – some just need to share files, or manage tasks, or automate processes with workflows. Learning to recognize the different types of collaborators and their reasoning for loving, or hating, collaboration will allow you to help each overcome their biggest barriers or objections.

Universal Design for Learning: Present and Future Directions

Universal Design for Learning: Present and Future Directions | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Recent research in cognitive neuroscience reveals that what we call "learning" is highly diverse - both within and across individuals. The annual conference, Making a Difference: Educational Practices that Work sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, featured a keynote address by CAST's David Rose in which he presents a cognitive neuroscience framework for understanding individual differences in learning.

Curricular Opportunities in the Digital Age | Students at the Center

Curricular Opportunities in the Digital Age | Students at the Center | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

This paper explores how new digital technologies can be used to design curricula that are flexible enough to adapt readily to individual differences. The authors propose that universal design for learning—as the confluence of advances in the neuroscience of human variability and in multimedia technologies—can create an “ecology for learning” which provides rich, diverse, student-centered learning pathways for all students.
