In this, teachers were randomly allocated to treatment or business-as-usual conditions at both sites. Both groups used the same curriculum and had the same unit goals. 
Also the Corgi application was applied by teachers in the therapy group.

About

With COVID-19 closing schools and learning centers across Algeria, World Learning’s STEM Team rapidly created online activities for participants in diverse communities. The UDL framework guided the creation of content and the continuous tinkering that followed to assure meaningful interaction for the maximum number of learners. Synchronous and asynchronous content targeted diverse participants from the Saharan desert to the Mediterranean coast, increasing participation by over 500% compared to physical attendance rates. Participants will be able to interact directly with STEM Mentors in Algeria to learn how to adapt online learning opportunities for diverse audiences, reducing barriers and increasing engagement using multiple means of online participation.

You Don’t Have to be an Instructional Designer to Design Great Math and Science Instruction

Now that we’ve had some time to reflect on the ongoing shift in learning environments, it’s time to move beyond compliance and take a look at how to design active and engaging digital math and STEM instruction that engages and supports diverse learners.

About

During the rapid move to remote learning, many hardworking educators were stretched to their limits. Juggling compliance with schools and state requirements, and remodeling their teaching strategies and classroom activities to ensure students kept on track. Now that we’ve had some time to reflect on the ongoing shift in learning environments, it’s time to move beyond compliance and take a look at how to design active and engaging digital math and STEM instruction that engages and supports diverse learners.

UDL Supports for Math and Science

Martin McKay discusses new approaches to allow students to express their math knowledge and consume math and science subjects in several new innovative ways.

No votes yet

About

Over the past number of years, UDL supports and scaffolding for literacy have become increasingly available, however math instruction has remained primarily and stubbornly a paper-based practice.  

On average, over 60% of 4th and 8th graders are not proficient in Math, and estimated remedial math enrollment continues to rise each year. The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that math teachers all over the world have been thrust into remote instruction using digital tools.

So how can the UDL framework help us to guide our students?

During this session Martin discusses new approaches to allow students to express their math knowledge and consume math and science subjects in several new innovative ways. The expression of accessible math & science by predictive typing, speaking, writing and even OCR of and handwritten math is now a reality.

Design Thinking Process and UDL Meet Makerspace

The authors created a planning tool for makerspaces using the Design Thinking Process and Universal Design for Learning.

Average: 3 (2 votes)

About

The authors combine the principles of Design Thinking and UDL in three prescriptive classroom projects within the realm of the "makerspace" movement, with implications for STEM and STEAM.   Students learn to make a stable product, use tools, consider the needs of another, solve challenges, overcome setbacks and sustain motivation. The projects also teach students to build on the ideas of others, vet sources, generate questions, deeply analyze topics, and think creatively and analytically, goals associated with Common Core State Standards.
