The Triple E Framework, developed in 2011 by Professor Liz Kolb at the University of Michigan, School of Education, was created to address the desire for K-12 educators to bridge research on education technologies and teaching practice in the classroom.
DTL - Essential Pedagogical Understanding and Application
This collection includes resources that support essential pedagogical understanding and application (Ed Tech Competency 1.b).
Kendra Grant and Luis Perez created this site as a companion to their book Dive Into UDL. The purpose of the site is to aid your professional learning and provide you with resources, activities, challenges and questions to support your growing experience with and understanding of Universal Design for Learning. They have attempted to model UDL principles through the design of the both the site and its resources.
This resource is a research review exploring the relationship between Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Differentiated Instruction (DI). Abstract: A lot of confusion between UDL and DI exists, especially on how they exactly relate to each other. Consequently, a systematic review was conducted to identify all specific types of interrelationships between both pedagogical models in the literature. In total, 27 peer-reviewed articles were included. Three conceptual interpretations of the UDL and DI interrelationship were identified.
This is a lesson plan template created by the Utah Education Network. It is meant to guide educators through creating lesson plans that contain all the necessary components for teacher and student success. Remix this template each time you create a lesson to share in eMedia. When you edit each section of the lesson plan template, delete the template description and add your own content. Add files and links to each section as needed. Remember to replace the preview image with an openly licensed image or screen capture that represents your lesson. After completing each lesson plan section included in this template, you will click "next" at the top of your screen. This is when you will replace this overview with your own brief description of your lesson. You will also be asked to finalize your lesson details (metadata), including connecting it to state curriculum standards. Please do not skip these details. These choices are what align your lesson to state standards and help others search for resources in eMedia. Thank you for contributing to eMedia!
