Mark Hofer shares how he implements Universal Design for Learning in his teaching, so that all students have the opportunity to learn. Podcast notes Guest: Mark Hofer Twitter Luminaris Blog Universal design for learning Student, Tony, who helped Mark identify the need for Universal Design for Learning (UDL) …gives all individuals equal opportunities to learn. – National Center on Universal Design for Learning National Center on Universal Design for Learning UDL on Campus Interactive version of UDL guidelines Printable version of UDL guidelines Universal design in architecture If you think about [the UDL] components as you're designing your course, you're going to wind up with better learning experiences for all your students. – Mark Hofer Addressing concerns about UDL We inadvertently put up barriers for our students in their learning. Mark's compare and contrast example, written about on his blog Get started incorporating UDL into a course Step 1: What do I know that students struggle with related to this [topic or competency]? Step 2: What kind of options could I include to help them with [those common challenges]? It does take students some time to get used to the idea that there may be more than one way to [accomplish] something. – Mark Hofer Guidelines Engagement – Mark is building his course around badges and experiences (through gamification and choice) …goal is to try to make the learning as relevant and interesting to the learning, not just initially, but to sustain their interest in the learning… – Mark Hofer Representation – pulling together readings, videos, interactives, where you can choose the way to learn Action and expression – Mark is creating, for each project, 3 different options, all measured by the same rubric While it is more [work] to select the various kinds of resources, it's paid back when in class the students are more prepared and we can go into further depth. -Mark Hofer Getting started with UDL Peter Newbury describes getting started with peer instruction on episode #053 Don't try to do [UDL] for every lesson, every day; it's a recipe for burnout. – Mark Hofer Make sure all assignments aren't of the same type, over the course of a semester “Pick a topic / concept that you know that students struggle with and try to find a range of different materials and see if it makes a difference.” – Mark Hofer Common misconception about UDL While technology can help you implement UDL, it isn't dependent on using it… UDL is an instructional approach and does not require technology In relation to universal design If you apply good accessibility practices to [course content], it will really benefit multiple learners in the process. – Mark Hofer Recommendations Bonni recommends: Listen to Mac Power Users 265 on Apple Music Mark recommends: UDLcenter.org UDLoncampus – specifically for higher ed Luminaris Link Blog Closing notes Rate/review the show.

Put the Focus Back on Learning
Rank #1: Learning is Personal not Personalized.
Personal learningWill and Bruce talk deeply about one of the biggest buzz words in education: Personalized Learning. They riff on this article from Wired. Will is a long time advocate for personal learning and not personalized learning. You can read his blogs about it here and here. So, you might be wondering if there is really a difference between personalized and personal, and trust me, if you talk with Will enough, you will be convinced that there is definitely a difference.According to Will, personal learning is a culture and a mindset. Personal learning means shifting the agency to the learner. Teachers will need to give up control.As the conversation continues, the two discuss the amount of money people in schools are spending on technology tools that claim to personalize learning. Bruce points out that we align school with content delivery. Vendors sell neatly packaged content because they cannot sell pedagogy. No one considers how relevant that content will be in the modern world. Bruce also cautions that technology that boasts personalized learning trivializes the role of the teacher as a professional. The level of complexity necessary to create an environment where children can learn is significant. The technology tools pedaling personalized learning experiences cannot take those things into consideration. The conversation ends with Bruce encouraging teachers, parents, administrators, and even students to have more critical conversations about the need to think more deeply about what the learning environment should be for their kids and it shouldn't just be about picking up the latest and greatest personalized learning application.We'd love to know what you think about this.

Rank #2: #69 – The Power of Community with Peter Block.
It's a new month as we turn into September 2019 and that means a new theme for our podcasts and for our conversations in MLC, our Modern Learners Community. Podcastwise, I'm a little sad that our dive into the theme of Story in August is over. What I've learned is that we tell stories in schools in more ways that we realize, and that the narratives that we create have a huge influence on how kids and teachers experience school on a daily basis. I really hope you enjoyed that series.But now we're moving on to our next theme, "Community." It's another one of those words that we use often but don't fully define when it comes to our systems and practice. And At a moment in the world when so many things seem to be moving apart, we want to take a look at how we might work to bring things together, to create closer bonds, especially of course in the context of schools. In other words, what does learning within community look like, and what practical steps can we take to make community, rather than individuals, the operating system of schools.Just a reminder, we do have some structure to this. As we do each month, we'll use the four parts of our Modern Learners Lens to guide our podcast conversations. This week, we'll focus on how community is built on our beliefs. Next week, we'll ask how our ideas about community are changing given the modern contexts we live in. Our third framing will be around classroom practice; what happens when the community becomes the curriculum? And finally, we'll explore how cultures in schools change when community is placed at the center.I can't tell you how excited I am to kick off this series with the person who wrote the book on community, literally, Peter Block. Through his company Designed Learning, Peter has worked with thousands of people to use the community-building skills he writes about. And let me just say that his book "The Answer to How? is Yes" should be on every school leaders list who is looking to engage in meaningful conversations around change.In this episode, Peter and I discuss the definition of community, the ways in which schools are focused on competition and individualism, and how to build a different narrative for what learning looks like in schools. Be prepared to be challenged and inspired all at once.Hope you enjoy it, and don't forget, if you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe and give us a rating and review on your favorite podcast app.Real fast, inside of MLC+ this month, we are discussing Peter's book.
