  • 9. Curriculum Barriers
    • Each learner brings unique strengths, challenges, and interests to learning tasks, and that the idea of a homogeneous group of "typical" learners is really a myth.
    • 10. The one-size-fits-all approach found in traditional, print-based teaching methods and materials contains hidden barriers for many learners. The best way to spot them is to evaluate the materials and methods you use in the context of your students' strengths, needs, and interests.

  • Designing Instruction to Support Recognition Learning
    Recognition Learning is the gathering of facts.
    How we categorize what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters, words and or author’s style are recognition tasks.
    The “what” of learning
  • 12. Present more examples
    As well as present counter-examples.
    Method 1: Provide Multiple Examples
  • 13. Teachers highlight critical features when they speak-using pitch, volume, pauses, intonation pointing, gesturing and facial expressions.
    In text , such as italics, bold-faced, font size and color could draw learners attention.
    Digit media and tools offer teachers a wider variety of ways to highlight such as animation, color highlighting and graphic elements.
    Overlay text and images into video
    Method 2: Highlight CriticalFeatures
  • 14. learners' recognition networks have varying abilities to process visual, aural, olfactory, or tactile patterns, a single means of presentation doesn't work for all students
    teaching in multiple modalities (a technique sometimes called transmediation) not only increases access for students with difficulties but also improves learning generally among all students (Siegil, 1995).
    Method 3: Provide multiple media and format
  • 15. Teacher helps students tie their background knowledge to new patterns and help fill the gaps by providing related information.
    This is top-down recognition process
    Digital materials provide an ideal vehicle for supporting background knowledge.
    Method 4 : Support Background Knowledge
