Teaching in Today's Inclusive Classrooms: A Universal Design for Learning Approach | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

A concise, accessible, and current main text for the Introduction to Inclusive Teaching course. It is the only inclusion textbook available with a consistent, integrated emphasis on Universal Design for Learning (UDL)--an important, contemporary educational philosophy focused on using strategies and tools to help ALL students by accommodating their differences. This text also provides foundational information about children with disabilities who are included in today's classrooms, and the most effective strategies for teaching them alongside their typically developing peers. Featuring new case studies and sound research-based teaching and learning strategies, this hands-on text offers pre-service and in-service teachers a practical, flexible framework for effective instruction, classroom management, assessment, and collaboration in today's diverse classrooms.

The Contours of Inclusion: Inclusive Arts Teaching and Learning

The purpose of this publication is to share models and case examples of the process of inclusive arts curriculum design and evaluation. The first section explains the conceptual and curriculum frameworks that were used in the analysis and generation of the featured case studies (i.e. Understanding by Design, Differentiated Instruction, and Universal Design for Learning). Data for the cases studies was collected from three urban sites (i.e. Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Boston) and included participant observations, student and teacher interviews, curriculum documentation, digital documentation of student learning, and transcripts from discussion forum and teleconference discussions from a professional learning community. The initial case studies by Glass and Barnum use the curricular frameworks to analyze and understand what inclusive practices look like in two case studies of arts-in-education programs that included students with disabilities. The second set of precedent case studies by Kronenberg and Blair, and Jenkins and Agois Hurel uses the frameworks to explain their process of including students by providing flexible arts learning options to support student learning of content standards. Both sets of case studies illuminate curricular design decisions and instructional strategies that supported the active engagement and learning of students with disabilities in educational settings shared with their peers. The second set of cases also illustrate the reflective process of using frameworks like Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to guide curricular design, responsive instructional differentiation, and the use of the arts as a rich, meaningful, and engaging option to support learning. Appended are curriculum design and evaluation tools. (Individual chapters contain references.)

Universally Designing Learning for ALL

Universally Designing Learning for ALL | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

We all learn different ways. In order to create understanding, we need to be able to perceive, interact, and engage in learning in different ways. UDL is about understanding the learners in our classrooms, by eliminating barriers and creating access (or opportunities) for all students to learn. UDL and technology go hand in hand! Because of the flexibility and capabilities of technology, you can impact all learners!

Digital Differentiation ~ Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Technology is a tool that can be used to help teachers facilitate learning experiences that address the diverse learning needs of all students and help them develop 21st Century Skills. At it's most basic level, digital tools can be used to help students find, understand and use information. When combined with student-driven learning experiences fueled by Essential Questions offering flexible learning paths, it can be the ticket to success. Here is a closer look at three components of effectively using technology as a tool for digital differentiation.

Focus Area: Learning | Change People’s Lives Conference | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

The 20th century solution of ‘special’ products for ‘special’ learners is giving way to the realization that difference in needs and preferences is universal and needs to be mainstreamed. As technology for learning becomes ubiquitous, it’s time to recognize that every tool for learning needs to anticipate the broadest possible range of learners and build in the flexibility to make the ordinary extraordinary. Among the beneficiaries of thinking differently about tools for learning will be the lifelong learners for whom learning will be a constant as long as they live

Prezi

A short introduction to Prezi. Prezi is used as platform for bridging linear and non-linear information, and as a tool for both for free-form brainstorming and structured presentation. Text, images, videos and other presentation media are placed upon the canvas, and can be grouped together in frames. Users then designate the relative size and position between all presentation objects and may pan and zoom in and between these objects. For linear presentations, users can construct a prescribed navigation path.
