This Thursday we’ll be talking with Nicole McClure about her online and blended learning experiences through the lens of universal design for instruction (UDI), defined as “the proactive design and use of inclusive instructional strategies that benefit a broad range of learners including students with disabilities.”
Digital presentation tools figure prominently in many online and blended learning environments. In exploring this week’s materials, can you identify ways in which these tools could support our diverse learners? Reflecting on your students and your own learning, how might these ‘next-generation’ presentation tools help students as individuals and as members of a community of practice?
On Friday we’ll get some hands-on practice with a variety of cloud-based presentation environments, brainstorm our classroom projects and take a closer look at our wiki.
I’ve placed the link to our recorded session on our LearnCentral Event page. You’ll see it at the bottom as well as the links we discussed. One of our outside participants, Candida, posted her notes and thoughts on our session on her blog. Feel free to leave a comment there and expand our community of practice!
