With the transition to remote learning, we must be vigilant in addressing students who need additional supports in order to be successful. In this session, we will share resources and strategies to support student’s learning differences, including those in our EC programs, in our new learning contexts. Part I will focus on defining learning differences in the context of Principles for Remote Learning, Universal Design for Learning, selecting appropriate tools and content, and pursuing educational equity.
We invite educators to continue to learn and grow with these resources. Discover and collect new ideas and examples relevant to you after viewing the session video and related resources. Take notes and reflect while you view so you can customize the techniques for your own remote learning and classroom needs and adapt the strategies for your students. Let these guiding questions support your reflective practice after viewing the session and/or reviewing of session materials:
- How is universal design for learning distinct from accessibility?
- What are some strategies that you can use to ensure that your content is accessible to all of your learners?
- What are some strategies that you can use to promote equitable learning experiences among your students, particularly those who experience learning challenges or have limited resources?
