Mulitple Means of Expression - Meaning Making: Promoting Deep Understanding of Content | Using Technology to Transform Learning | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein shares Wes Fryer's "Making Media for the Curriculum" that illustrates the media that can support multiple means of expression and ways for all leanrers to demonstrate understanding of the content.

 

The following guidelines related to Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression are addressed when learners make personalized meaning of the content:

 

> Use social media and interactive web tools (e.g., discussion forums, chats, web design, annotation tools, storyboards, comic strips, animation presentations)

> Compose in multiple media such as text, speech, drawing, illustration, comics, storyboards, design, film, music, visual art, sculpture, or video

> Use web applications (e.g., wikis, animation, presentation)Use story webs, outlining tools, or concept mapping tools

In this interview you will learn about UDL and how the principles of UDL could be used to help all students understand their own learning. Envision using the UDL principles to help learners understand how they learn and how to personalize their learning. 

 

Universal Design in Learning (UDL) is about providing instruction and the appropriate tools to all learners so they are successful in meeting their learning goals. Personalized learning is all about the learner and starts with the learner. There seems to be some confusion about what UDL is from the perspective of personalized learning.

 

Q7:  Why is UDL necessary for all learners? 

When any student understands how they learn, they are empowered to take ownership of their learning. This opens doors in having tools and resources that can help them become independent learners and motivated in learning, in and out of school. It also opens up windows of opportunities for learners to appreciate their aptitudes, talents and gifts and for teachers to guide and nurture them in the learning activities and projects.

Personal Learner Profiles and Common Core - Personalizing Learning

Personal Learner Profiles and Common Core - Personalizing Learning | Using Technology to Transform Learning | Scoop.it

We realize that moving to a personalized learning environment where learners drive their learning takes time over several phases. The first phase is starting with the teacher so they understand Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and how to teach and support all learners in their class. 

 

We are introducing the Personal Learner Profile, a tool to help each learner how they learn best.  Each learner is unique and we need for students to be proactive in they way they learn.  We have also included a scenario and how three learners could meet a CCSS ELA standard and how a classroom could be redesigned to support a personalized learning environment.

 

"To meet the standard ELA-RL.3.1, the teacher presents a story and offers multiple ways to read, listen, and respond to the story. To personalize the classroom, it can be set up with multiple stations so learners have choices how to learn and demonstrate understanding of a concept:

> Station 1: laptop computers

> Station 2: 2-3 tables grouped for collaborative work

> Station 3: teacher area with places for students to sit (rug or bean bag chairs)

> Station 4: individual area for privacy or journalling with mobile devices

> Station 5: standing or pacing area (desks could be high without chairs)"
