mATch - Maryland Assistive Technology Connection Hub | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

The mATch up Tool provides information on low, mid, and high tech devices for meeting the unique needs of students. The tool was designed with a variety of users in mind – teachers, parents, administrators, and in some cases, students themselves. The idea is to provide a handy, ready-access way of gathering information on tools that might help open access to academic and non-academic settings.Discover the tools that support students in reading, writing, communication, organization, etc.

Book Sprints and Booki: Re-Imagining How Textbooks are Produced

Book Sprints and Booki: Re-Imagining How Textbooks are Produced | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

One of the most exciting areas for potential is OER – Open Educational Resources. I hope we will soon see the formal integration of Book Sprints and Booki into curricula to create and improve textbooks. Although it is an uncommon practice, most people who ask for and participate in a sprint see it as a book production methodology. However, while we do produce books, a Book Sprint is as much as about learning as it is about writing. I would argue that in all circumstances the collaborators walk away having learned a great deal about the subject they have just created a book about.
