Universal Design for Learning: Variability in Emotion and Learning

Samantha G. Daley research scientist at CAST presented on "Supporting All Learners Through UDL: Variability in Emotion and Learning" at Towson University.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Samantha G. Daley is a research scientist at CAST, where she investigates the relationship between emotions and cognitive performance of students, particularly those with learning disabilities. She focuses on the role of emotions in learning activities and how to design instruction to reflect the relationship between emotion and cognition in learning.

Todd Rose: Variability in Learning Matters

Todd Rose, from CAST at the Cyberlearning Research Summit on January 18, 2012, discusses why variability in learning matters.  There is the myth of the average learner that currently exists.  We need to understand the variability in learning and how to design new learning environments for the full range of learners in the classroom.

 

He ends his talk with this question:  "What do we want cyberlearning to be?  First we need to understand variability and how we design for it."
