M4 Learning Log 2 – UDL

July 19, 2011 at 1:42 pm Leave a comment

I really enjoyed the article by Kirsten Lee Howard, and thought her example of guided reading for all students was a great example of not just UDL, but meshing content areas to given them meaning and purpose.  I like giving the students options, it’s not free range to pick whatever they want, but it’s not restricting their learning either.  Options give student power to take control of their own learning. I haven’t used, seen, or heard of eReader, but I’ve very curious to use it, as well the program to highlight and retrieve definitions.  I think instead of using Dreamweaver, the same result could be made using Word and saving as a pdf file.  I think these tools help make learning less intimidating when students have so much pressure to progress.  I thought her questions to help guide planning and assessment are getting starting points to make us think of the larger picture.  We always talk about how there are different learning styles, UDL gives us a way to truly reach each student no matter how they learn.
