4 AR tools to build executive function and engagement | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it
Use QR codes, AR apps and posters, and iBeacons to get students moving and engaged while bolstering their executive functioning and comprehension skills.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

How do you create a learning environment that is filled with purposeful, motivated, strategic, goal-directed learners? 

One way to create this type of learning environment is with the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, which aims to develop expert learners. In addition to removing barriers and making learning accessible to the widest varied of learners possible, UDL addresses many of the metacognitive and self-efficacy skills associated with becoming an expert learner, including:

  • Executive functions. These cognitive processes include initiation, goal setting, attention, planning and organization.
  • Comprehension skills. This skillset encompasses knowledge construction, making connections, developing strategies and monitoring understanding.
  • Engagement principles. These soft skills include coping, focus, resilience, effort, persistence, self-assessment and reflection.


Discover from Luis Perez and Kendra Grant the tools that can help develop the expert learner.

UDL Principle 3 and Web 2.0 - Wikis, podcasts and blogs | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

How can Web 2.0 tools help support UDL Principle 3: the "why" of learning?  Here are just a few example on how wikis, podcasts and blogs can provide "muliple means of expression".

 

How can wikis help?

> Hyperlinks can be used to make meaningful connections between current content and its “real life” uses

> Hyperlinks can be used to connect to news reports and other information that validates the time spent in class on a topic

> Educators can offer students option to work together in an online format on group projects

> Educators can offer students the option to share work product online (either with or without comments and changes available to viewers)

 

How can podcasts help?

> Educators can offer multiple podcasts or vodcasts that explain content from different angles

> Educators can allow students to use podcasting (such as songs, radio shows, and news reports) and vodcasting (such as music videos, documentaries, and performing arts) technologies alone or as a group to create projects

 

How can blogs help?

> Educators can use daily and weekly blog postings to clarify choices and communicate to students and parents which parts are choice and which parts are required

> Educators can use blog postings to frequently make connections between the current content and real-life applications
