Manuel De Los Santos

"Manuel de los Santos is one of sport's most inspirational figures. Growing up in the Dominican Republic, he played baseball from a young age and by 2003 was planning to turn professional. But a motorcycle accident changed his life forever when he lost his left leg above the knee.

Following this accident, he moved to France and on seeing the film, 'The Legend of Bagger Vance', he was inspired to take up golf. Now 26 years old, Manuel lives in Paris and plays to a handicap of just three, competing in high profile tournaments all around the world. His extraordinary golf swing has become instantly recognisable.

Peter Montgomery read about Manuel at the end of 2009 and had the idea of making a film about him. This short documentary portrait is the result."

Universal Design For Learning (UDL): A MentorMob Playlist | MyWeb4Ed

Universal Design For Learning (UDL): A MentorMob Playlist | MyWeb4Ed | MyWeb4Ed | Scoop.it

Universal Design For Learning (UDL) is a concept born from the work of architects to develop buildings that remove physical barriers so that they are accessible to all people. From this idea, educators began to focus on removing the barriers that work against learning. UDL improves the possibility of a positive academic outcome and deliberately focuses on meeting the individual needs of the students. In addition, resources are provided through websites that support the educator implementing UDL ideals.

This playlist provides an overview of UDL along with some interactive activities to further understanding.

MyWeb4Ed:  Create An Instructional Classroom Website | MyWeb4Ed | Scoop.it

Thank you for joining me for MyWeb4Ed’s two-week course: Creating a Classroom Instructional Website. This course will guide participants through the creation and management of a classroom website. This website will provide students with 24/7 access to assignments, projects, reviews, and important course resources. The completed website will also allow parents access to critical information to support classroom activities and increase student academic success. The completed website will contain the 5 critical pages for a successful instructional classroom website: Home Page, About Me Page, Information Page, Sharing Page, and Assignment Page. The Assignment Page, the most critical of the five website pages, teaches content and provides guided and independent practice to provide students the academic resources necessary to ensure mastery and will be a highlight of this course. Learners will discover the best practices for implementation in a face-to-face classroom setting.
