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!

A few years ago I met Alex at an ISTE Conference and want to say that she has a wealth of experience and knowledge in using tools with diverse learners. Alex is  a speech language pathologist with the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and she will be sharing both UDL strategies and iPad apps that are engaging for ALL students. She will also introduce class profiling as a valuable strategy for teachers.


Don't miss this webinar as you will walk away with ideas that you can use in your classroom tomorrow!

Dena Rosko's curator insight, January 25, 2013 2:46 PM

Excerpt | "UDL embraces the concept of improved access for everyone and applies it to curriculum materials and teaching methods. Rather than rely on AT to bridge the gap between the material and the student's learning needs, materials designed using UDL concepts have built-in accommodations. Add-on technology is less often needed to translate the material into a mode that enables learning..."

I stand firm on the idea that students will dig deeper and work harder if they not only are allowed to create in class, but also are able to share. This project hit both those, plus pushed them to research and gather information on their own.

This is all about "flipping the learning" where students create the tutorials for each other. This example demonstrates in how to give students ownership to their learning.
