Infographic: Left vs. Right Brain

Infographic: Left vs. Right Brain | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

"If you ever wondered why you act the way you do, the answer may lie in which side of your brain you tend to use more. Allthough they're generalizations, popular theories suggest that right-brain people have different skills and preferences than those who are left-brain people. How do these differences impact you? Find out in this infographic."

 

The Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) has noted that how we learn is as unique as our DNA.  This infographic will help you discover about what side of the brain you use most often, and then ask yourself, WHY?

"A service called Bookshare makes traditional books quickly accessible for students with certain disabilities."


Access to the curriculum and reading materials for students with print and visual disabilities is a key step for schools to achieve acaemic success for all students.  Bookshare is the respository for K-12 copyrighted and non-copyrighted books and textbooks for students with print and visual disabilities.  This service is currently at no cost to schools in the United States.

The Student Voice – our survey, Part 4: “I learn best in class when…”

The Student Voice – our survey, Part 4: “I learn best in class when…” | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

After reading these student responses and reviewing the graph on how students learn best, it became evident the need to apply the principles of UDL in our instruction.  Listen closely and learn!

 

"In our continuing look at what works and doesn't work for students, based on our 7300+ student survey reponses, we consider their answer to the prompt: I learn best in class when...

There are few real surprises in the findings: they learn best when there is hands-on experience, lots of examples, discussion, order, visual aids. But have a look at the patterns. More specifically, as you read these, ask yourself: Which of these form a consistent pattern of common-sense best practice? However: Which of these answers in general conflict with one another? In other words, we have below some important evidence of an easily-overlooked fact: what works for some people does not work for others. So, as professionals we have an obligation to factor that need for varied and differentiated learning into our plans." - Grant Wiggins

How the Human Brain Retains Information - Infographic

How the Human Brain Retains Information - Infographic | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

The human brain consists of about one billion neurons. Each neuron forms about 1,000 connections to other neurons, amounting to more than a trillian connections. This amounts to quite a large storage capacity. At Mindflash they examine how the brain retains all this information and displays it visually – after all, visuals are the easiest media to retain for most.  Here is the science behind UDL!
