UDL: Transforming Education through Technology
- Personalized education
- Teaching and learning styles
- Various routes to the same destination
Personalized education, not standardized
Students are able to share their knowledge versus being the same as everyone else
Strengths rise across areas with the same guidelines.
Flexibility allows students to apply their knowledge to various items familiar to them.
Relatively the same across areas of: affect, recognition and strategy.
What is the goal of education?
Grouping all "alike" students whether with disabilities or gifted
Develop higher learning skills
Foster a love for learning in both the novice and skilled learner.
GPS Theory: one destination, many routes
Digital movement (active) versus print only (deescalating)
Allows for individual learning experience
Recognition - the "what" of learning (identifying information - making sense of what we see, hear and read).
Strategic - the "how" of learning (planning, execute, monitor ourselves internally).
Affective - the "why" of learning (emotions that can influence learning)
