Some thoughts around UDL from thought-provoking +Lynne Silcock  #uChoose   #UDL  
In this blog I offer you my thoughts about what UDL (universal design for learning) is (and is not) and how it is differs from differentiation and adaptation. The concept of UDL is really well articulated in this Enabling Elearning video when the student (Felix) says: “Last year I had dyslexia and I felt different. This year I don’t feel different; it’s much easier”. Felix had been in a class where he was the only student using a laptop to supp...

A thought provoking post from +Rosalie Reiri about homework versus work at home... #uChoose  
Homework versus work at home. The homework debate: Should children be given homework? If yes, what type and why? Here is the million dollar question everybody should know the answer to: ‘Does homework really improve learning?’

Story
Introduction

I am an Education and eLearning Consultant with, and Director of, Ethos Consultancy NZ.

I have a keen interest in all aspects of ICT enhanced learning and teaching where the focus lies on ways of scaffolding and empowering learners. In particular, I am interested in the way that creative, blended approaches to Professional Learning and Development can create trust, rapport and encourage reflective practice. As such, learning is approached from facilitation, design, evaluation and assessment as opposed to the tools and what they can offer.

I am a strong advocate of the potential of Web 2.0 to empower learners from all walks of life and cultures, especially after my experiences working for 6 years in the Middle East. In particular, I am interested how ePortfolios can be used in the Vocational Education and Traning sector (especially where Literacy and Language challenges are faced), in Recognition of Prior Learning, and in authentic, applied assessment.

I have been involved with designing and developing learning approaches and programmes for twelve years. Following research informed approaches and design, I apply a qualitative, iterative process to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions, programmes and tools, encouraging learners' voices and input from all stakeholders.
