Storyboard Text

  • I feel comfortable leading a group in class. I love to talk!
  • Communication and Collaboration Mae and Markus, 7th graders
  • I get anxious when I have to speak in front of the class, but I still have a lot to share. I like when my teacher allows me to collaborate with my classmates using digital tools such as our Google Classroom conversations. I finally feel like my thoughts are heard!
  • Learning and Innovation Skills Mr. Simon Middleton, CEO of Innovation Enterprises
  • I'm not looking for a cookie cutter employee that can just sit still and follow directions. I am looking for creative, outside-the-box thinkers who can problem solve and collaborate effectively.
  • Information, Media, and Technology Skills Mrs. Elena Diaz, 5th Grade Teacher
  • I like to give all of my students access to digital texts, audio texts, graphic novels, and traditional paper novels. 
  • When my teacher gives me choice, I know I work best when I listen to a text.
  • 21st Century skills call for giving students opportunities to collaborate and communicate in online, blended, and face-to-face environments much like the real world. This can also give voice to students with different communication strengths! 
  • Life and Career Skills Mae and Markus, 7th graders
  • When given choice, I know I work best when I use my artistic abilities to express my ideas before I begin writing. I like to use sketch notes!
  • UDL gives students the opportunity to make decisions about how they work best. Students must learn to self-regulate and to think about themselves as learners, they will need the skills to be innovative and creative problem solvers in the workforce. 
  • Multiple Measures of Mastery  Mrs. Elena Diaz, 5th Grade Teacher
  • If a standard calls for having students compose a narrative, I know that there are many ways for students to show mastery of this skill. I can have my students create graphic novels, cool storyboards (like this one), a children's book, a podcast, a blog post, a traditional essay, and the list goes on.
  • Giving students access to digital texts and resources can help promote the digital literacy they will need as 21st century learners. 
  • Allow for Equitable Access to Technology, Learning Tools, and Resources August Hastings, 6th Grade Science Teacher
  • I used to look through IEPs and 504 plans and think, "Ok, this kid needs access to audio texts, lets make sure this kid has text-to-speech features enabled on his Chromebook, this student needs access to graphic organizers and visuals." Now I think, "Ok what are some options I can give to all learners to remove barriers.? Can I give all kids access to the audio and digital texts if that's how they learn best? If so, why not?
  • The flexibility and adaptability skills students gain from a UDL environment also promote 21st century skills.  The initiative and self-direction needed to know what suits you best as a learner will also help you in the workforce. 
  • Giving students access to digital texts and resources can help promote the digital literacy they will need as 21st century learners. 
  • Especially with digital tools and a wide array of add-ons and extensions that can remove barriers for students, why not make sure all students have equitable access to these options if that may be how they learn best. Yes, your student who must have access to text-to-speech features would benefit, but might other students benefit from this option, too?
