English with Mr. Borman - A place to reflect and share.

Jane Strunck's insight:

Mr. Borman used Edmodo to survey his student's learning preferences and based on the results, identified apps that would support reading comprehension and promote UDL in his classroom.  Would love to know how students responded to the options.  Nice process, Mr. Borman!

Mr. Borman surveyed 17 students in one of his classes and discovered that there were a few needs when it came to reading comprehension. He has put together "A Toolbox of Reading Comprehension Apps" that can support the needs of his students in his UDL classroom.  For each app, he has outlined "What it does", "How students can use it" and the "UDL Principles".

 

Check out the Toolbox:

> iBooks

> Popplet

> SyncSpace

> Odyssey (by Homer)

> Toontastic

> Explain Everything

> Ulysses

> Subtext

> Prezi

 

Thank you Mr. Borman!

"Nowadays teachers and students have a variety of ways to show what they know and to express themselves.  These web and iPad apps can turn students into teachers and teachers into super-teachers! Furthermore, most of the apps listed in the infographic are free of charge."

This is delicious to look at.

This info graphic shows multiple ways that our 2e kids can process, retell, and "show" what they know without ever having to put pencil to paper. At last, light at the end of the tunnel for our very visual kids with dygraphia!
