PD on the Go: The Myth of Average

Join us every Friday to see one of our favorite short videos to grow and enhance your practice.

Learning environments designed to meet the needs of the average student limit teaching and learning. Listen to Todd Rose, Ed.D. discuss the implications of designing for the average student, and describe how we must move beyond that mindset and create richer, more robust learning environments enriched by technology for all students.

What do you think?

  • How can Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles help you create learning environments that meet the needs of all your students?
  • What can you do in your classroom to leverage student individuality?
  • Think about classrooms of the future. How could adaptable, accessible learning environment look?

Take this from theory to practice

A quick review of the UDL principles show how we can better meet the needs of all students by rethinking how we engage learners, represent information, and provide multiple action and expression with the use of technology. Use the PowerUp What Works ELA and Math strategy guides to support your technology-enhanced instruction.

See you here next week.
