## I <3 Math Videos | PBS Learning Media

Jane Strunck's insight:

"This video series introduces key Common Core concepts in 6th grade mathematics. Each video focuses on building conceptual understanding of a topic, so that students understand the “how” and “why” behind mathematical problem solving.

Use these videos with your students as topical introductions to topics including integers, the concept of ratios, unit rates, percent, and division with fractions."

PBS Learning Media has put together a set of videos to support learners in math. Take a look around and you will discover brand new, original content from PBS including Peg + Cat (Pre-K) and the PBS Math Club (Grades 6-8)!

## Chisel a Teaching Masterpiece Using UDL

With Universal Design for Learning as their chisel, says Elizabeth Stein, teachers can sculpt super learning environments to meet every student's needs.

Elizabeth Stein creates a wonderful analogy of using UDL to create learning environments for all learners. Here is a brief exerpt from her blog on this subject:

"I’d like to offer my version of a teacher’s chisel–a professional tool that can help us to successfully create optimal learning environments. This tool is called the Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

And UDL can be such a powerful chisel. If we stay mindful as we use it, we can not only create one sculpture at a time, like the artist. We also have the power to create a classroom full of masterpieces –simultaneously. It’s simply amazing."

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight,

Greg Alchin's curator insight,

UDL should be one of the cornerstone understandings of all teachers.

## Universal Design for Learning...Has a nice ring, doesn't it?

Cover image by Giulia Forsythe

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has a great ring to it as it infers that lessons and instruction are designed for all learners in the classroom. Can you imagine learning environments where all learners can thrive? Using the UDL lens to understand the learners in your classroom can help teachers do exactly that.

Placing this concept in the field of education, the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) coined UDL to apply to all learners, regardless of (dis)abilities. In 2003, CAST has been creating instructional materials for over 10 years, mostly digital, to fit this principle of “universal”. Now 10 years later, the concept is finally becoming more known in our new times of the Common Core and increasingly accessible digital technologies.
