  1. 1. Advantages and Limitations of Traditional Media Notes from: Teaching Every Student in the Digital Age: Universal Design for Learning
  2. 2. “Learners’ capacities are not inherent; capacities are defined by the interplay between learners’ abilities and the tools they use.”
  3. 3. The tools we use…
  4. 4. Traditional Fixed Media • Speech • Text • Images
  5. 5. Speech Advantages • Natural sounding • Expressive • Vary: pace, volume, pitch to emphasize points • Physical cues: facial expression, gestures, posture • Respond to audience Limitations • Listener’s must remember • Easy to overload on info • Can’t pause it live
  6. 6. Text Advantages • Reduces memory demands • Revisit any time • Distributed to mass audience Limitations • Lacks expressiveness • Must understand different formats: novel, newspaper, poems, reference • Conventions can be tough to understand
  7. 7. Images Advantages • Communicate everything at once • Easily present emotion, feeling, mood, relationships, comparisons • No decoding Limitations • Not ideal for: philosophical, abstract • Cannot communicate anything below the surface
  8. 8. No media is perfect for every student so we should always have several media options.
  9. 9. Flexible Digital Media “Digital media becomes flexible in the way the content is stored and transmitted.” “What was once permanent can be altered, removed at will, or restored- multiple times.”
  10. 10. Flexible Digital Media Digital Media is • Versatile • Transformable • Can be marked • Can be networked
