Smaragda Papadopoulou's insight:

Facebook has a billion users, so it’s a fair guess to say that most of our students have a Facebook profile. Most students from kindergarten up through university would rather socialize than study, so why not meet them on their own ground by using Facebook as an interactive social learning tool? Teach, learn, and share the knowledge with the 1st Facebook Social Learning App Marketplace for Teachers and Students. Share the same education passion with us! Support our idea!

Preparing for a Different Kind of Middle Grades Classroom | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Descriptions of this next generation of classroom paint pictures of places where self-directed learning, student choice, and engagement built around enduring understanding are paramount. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is currently being applied to both the development and assessment of Common Core State Standards to measure student achievement. UDL, with origins in the neurosciences, prescribes flexible approaches to learning that are adjusted to meet the individual needs of students.

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.

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."

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in Library Instruction

This article introduces Universal Design for Learning (UDL), an emerging paradigm to “design course instruction, materials, and content to benefit people of all learning styles without adaption or retrofitting.” The study explores multiple UDL principles that could be applied to library instruction by providing a lesson plan in general and one focusing on teaching Boolean Logic. The article presents data and analyzes surveys to evaluate the impact these have on teaching effectiveness. The results of the survey suggest that a simple adoption of UDL can help students master search skills effectively.
