Stages of Learning – Knowing your Learners » Universally Designed

Stages of Learning – Knowing your Learners » Universally Designed | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Jason Gibson makes some important points about how to meet the need of ALL learners.  First and foremost, know your learners before you decide on an instructional  strategy and the technology you may use.  How do you do this?  Use the UDL Class Learning Profile.

 

"I wanted to share a foundational principle for meeting the needs of ALL learners. Before you select the technology, you must identify the strategy. Before you select the strategy, you have to know where your learners are in regards to the content/skill you are teaching! Knowing this will allow you to make the best instructional (including when, what, and how with technology) decision for each learner. Haring, et al., 1978 was one of the earliest to dive into these stages and it has moved forward with a few minor changes through the years. Here they are (drumroll please!): Acquisition, Fluency, Maintenance, and Generalization."
