A Glog that Tells the UDL Story

A Glog that Tells the UDL Story | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

"No two students are the same, no two students process information the same, and therefore students deserve to have information presented in multiple ways, students should be encouraged to showcase their knowledge in multiple ways, and students should be motivated in multiple ways." Melissa tells the story of UDL and includes video of UDL and the three principles along with the tools that can help support a diversity of learners in the classroom:   the CAST Lesson Builder, UDL Curriculum Self-check and Book Builder.

Engaging Students: The Next Level of Working on the Work

Engaging Students: The Next Level of Working on the Work | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

This innovative and practical book is focused on helping teachers become increasingly successful in designing engaging work for their students. Schlechty contends that rather than viewing schools as teaching platforms, schools must be viewed as learning platforms. Rather than seeing schools as knowledge distribution systems, schools must be seen as knowledge work systems. Rather than defining teachers as instructors, teachers must be defined as designers, leaders, and guides to instruction. Engaging Students also includes useful questionnaires that will facilitate discussion, analysis, and action planning at both school and classroom levels.

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.

What can computers teach that textbooks and paper can't?

What can computers teach that textbooks and paper can't? | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

So the question becomes: What exactly are these things? What types of teaching do computers make uniquely possible?

As it turns out, I’ve been asking lots of innovative teachers precisely this question over the last year as I’ve researched my book. They’ve tended to agree on the same list of concepts, some of which are really interesting and not the obvious ones.

Ideal for Introduction to Special Education/Introduction to Exceptionalities courses, this text provides strategies pre-service and in-service teachers can use to apply the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to their lesson planning.

The lessons included in this text are meant as a starting point for general education teachers who have students with special needs in their classrooms and can be adapted for primary and secondary learners with a wide range of challenges.
