  • 3.
    • Teachers must deliver instruction to diverse groups of students who come from a variety of cultures with varying languages, learning styles, abilities and disabilities.
    • These students are included in the General Education classroom.
    • Educational demands are on the rise
      • Shift from acquiring knowledge to integrating knowledge
      • Higher curriculum standards
      • All students are held to the same standards
  • 4.
    • No Child Left Behind (NCLB) state assessment participation rate.
    • Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) disaggregate subgroups, 1% participation cap.
    • Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004)
      • Match state benchmark and standards
      • Access for every student
    • Response to Intervention (RtI)
    • E quity I n E very I nstructional O pportunity (EIEIO)
  • 5.
      • with good curriculum,
      • flexible materials,
      • engaging assignments and
      • built in universal access features
  • 6.
    • All students need to be able to:
    • Recognize information, ideas, and concepts,
    • Apply effective strategies to process the information and
    • Be engaged in the process.
    • Vygotsky
  • 7. When the task is too difficult for the learner When the task is too easy for learner ZONE OF PROXIMAL DEVELOPMENT
  • 8. Right amount of support KEEP and modify High engagement Challenge is appropriate
  • 9.
    • Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing curricula that enable all individuals to gain knowledge , skills , and enthusiasm for learning.
    • UDL calls for the design of curricula with the needs of all students in mind, so that methods, materials, and assessment are usable by all.
    • UDL provides rich supports for learning and reduces barriers to the curriculum while maintaining high achievement standards for all.
  • 10.
    • Universal does NOT suggest that there is a single solution that works for everyone.
    • Employs Flexibility
    • Includes Alternatives
    • Sets Appropriate Goals
    • Separates the Goal from the Methods
    • Fixes the Curriculum NOT the Learner
  • 11. UDL is based on the 3 key networks of the brain. They are all interconnected. Learning Differences The Learning Brain Recognition Networks Strategic Networks Affective Networks
  • 12.
    • KEEP
    • Recognition networks Gathering facts. How we identify and categorize what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters, words, or an author's style are recognition tasks—the "what" of learning.
    • Strategic networks Planning and performing tasks. How we organize and express our ideas. Writing an essay or solving a math problem are strategic tasks—the "how" of learning.
    • Affective networks How students are engaged and motivated. How they are challenged, excited, or interested. These are affective dimensions—the "why" of learning.

    • Provide multiple examples
    • Highlight critical features (Big Idea)
    • Provide multiple media format
    • Support background context knowledge

    • Provide opportunities to practice with scaffolds. (supported practice)
    • Provide on-going relevant feedback.
    • Offer flexible opportunities to demonstrate skill.

  • 15.
    • Offer choices of content and tools.
    • Offer adjustable levels of challenge.
    • Offer choice of rewards
    • Offer choice of learning context.
    Center for Applied Special Technologies, CAST www.cast.org
  • 16.
    • Provide students with multiple means of presentation. (supports recognition network)
    • Provide students with multiple means of expression. (supports strategic network)
    • Provide students with multiple means of engagement . (supports affective network)
  • 17.
    • UDL promotes the use of new technologies to help students, but there are many ‘UDL’ strategies that don’t use technology.
  • 18.
    • Checking for understanding-paper throw
    • multiple means of expression, engagement
    • Highlighting critical features (not cheating!)
    • multiple means of presentation
    • Sticky notes, highlighter tape, concept maps
    • tapping into recognition network to support understanding
    • Provide choices
    • Multiple means of expression
    • Scaffolding
    • Finding the tools to get the job done
  • 19.  
  • 20.
    • Highlight critical features (Big Idea)
    • Provide multiple media format
    • Support background context knowledge
  • 21.
    • Microsoft Word has a feature called ‘auto summarize’
  • 22.
    • Used inexpensive MP3’s—still cool; much easier to manage than Ipods!
    • Student’s are in charge!
    • Activities: audio book, teacher’s grade papers, students projects (study guide with visual support)
  • 23.
    • I, ___________________________________, do solemnly swear to take good care of the MP3 player assigned to me. I promise to return it in perfect shape to Mrs. Laughlin by ___________________________. I also promise to use my own headphones for this MP3.
    • In addition, if I should somehow damage this MP3, I promise I will pay the replacement fee of $35.00 to Mrs. Laughlin.
    • I have checked out number _______________ MP3.
  • 24.
    • “…I enjoyed listening to the mp3 player while I was getting ready for bed, looking for clothes to pack…I would love to use one for review for another class anytime”
    • “…it was a lot easier than reading the whole book”
    • “…the mp3 player makes it easier to comprehend.”
    • “These mp3 were very useful when using these I was able to also clean my room and do laundry.”
  • 25.
    • "I liked it because it helped me understand what I did wrong.  It was easier than reading comments by the teacher.“
    • "amazing”
    • "I thought it was one of the best experiences in my English classes.  It made it fun to learn.“
    • "It was easy for me to know what I did wrong."                
  • 26.
    • One way to help support background knowledge is to show video clips of familiar activities and relate it to the concept you are trying to teach.
    • For example, if you are teaching Force
    • As you recall….Newton stated that change of motion is caused by forces . In other words force is “something” which can change the state of motion.
    • A video on tug of war would be a great discussion starter. http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v = ApORwKIQYAM
  • 27.
    • Academic videos are on TeacherTube –finding the right video is easier
    • Google video and TeacherTube get most of their videos from YouTube—will still be blocked
    • Zamzar will convert videos from google and Youtube but NOT Teacher tube.
    • Bottom line is, you will have to be able to work from a computer that isn’t blocked.
  • 28.
    • Included in a 5 th class
    • Working at a 1-2 grade level
    • Every student in class goes to lab and works on their Districts software for DI.
    • Software is to high for her.
    • Created her own protopage so she is doing similar activities as her peers.
