Dr. Allison Leggett, who oversees the teacher preparation program at the University of California, Los Angeles Extension, and her sous chef, Edrick Leggett joined CIDDL’s Christine Parsons in the CIDDL Cizzle’s kitchen to discuss distributive ledgers and make her grandmother’s Southern Corn Cakes.
With the winter holidays coming to an end, CIDDL’s Principal Investigators, staff, and doctoral students put together a list of “must have ” items that stood out this holiday season for the tech and innovation lover in your life. And, we won’t judge if you gift them all to yourself.
The guide breaks access to technology into three components: availability, affordability, and adoption. Within the guide, barriers to each component are laid out, as well as strategies to help combat them.
The concept of Opportunities to Respond (OTR) is an instructional-based strategy that encourages students to respond in different forms. Some of these opportunities may be errorless, yes/ no, or multiple choice. Using this strategy encourages more students to participate, and be more engaged, in the class.
Student choice is an important aspect of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which is often hard to provide when you are trying to find resources that relate to your course goals. If you want all your students to receive the same background information, how can you give choice?
Within CIDDL, there are many resources that may help you provide background knowledge to your students in courses studying Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Assistive Technology (AT), Educational Technology, and overall integration of technology into classrooms.
Special education teachers and related service providers are tasked with developing and maintaining high-quality data to support student progress towards goals. This means that the burden of exploring options to collect high quality data is on educator preparation programs (EPPs) and personnel. Beyond teaching how to write legally defensible goals and maintain high-quality data sheets from them, EPPs must also provide pre-service teachers with the skills to create and/or find resources to assess the assigned goals. Boom Cards™ by Boom Learning are interactive task cards that can be used in the brick-and-mortar classroom and virtually to provide teachers and related service providers with meaningful feedback for progress towards goals.
