Virtual Learning Network: How can technology play a useful part in supporting students as they transition into new environments?

Virtual Learning Network: How can technology play a useful part in supporting students as they transition into new environments? | Universal Design for Learning for educators | Scoop.it

Over the last week, Roxy, Patrick and I have been looking at how schools and class teachers can use technology and digital media to support students as they transition into new environments.

 

From a UDL perspective, we know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to supporting students, so we are keen to bring together a whole range of ideas to share back with schools.


So let us know some of strategies you have tried. Tell us what was successfull and why you think it worked so well.
