MY TOP 10 LEARNING SPACES – A Universal Design, in a Gifted Classroom

MY TOP 10 LEARNING SPACES – A Universal Design, in a Gifted Classroom | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

"The learning environment is what will help create community. Before anything, students need to feel safe. Not just physically safe, but safe to learn how they learn, safe to think “outside the box”, safe to ask questions, safe to make mistakes, safe to be who they are. I recently read a post by Jackie Gerstein, a friend and mentor who talks passionately about the importance of community in the classroom (It’s About Connections Not Content). Below, I talk about the learning spaces to honour all learners. It is my intention to help these students find their passions, their gifts, and their understanding of themselves."
