how to build a Personal Learning Backpack (PLB) of tools/technologies and apps a learner can use to support a strength or challenge; and
the skills learners need to be independent in their learning.
LP and PLB Templates, iOS, Chrome and Android resources included; webinars are recorded.
Why you should join us...
A learner who has agency can self-advocate for their own learning based on an understanding of his or her strengths, challenges, preferences and needs. The goal of these webinar is to provide participants with a process and a set of practical tools that will guide middle/high school learners in developing independent learning skills using the UDL Lens of Access, Engage and Express.
Participants will learn about developing a Learner Profile (LP) in order to build their Personal Learning Backpack (PLB). When you identify how you learn best using the LP, the next step is to determine what tools/technologies, apps and skills you need in your PLB to support your own learning. Demonstrations and examples of LP's and PLB's will be provided along with how these tools can support a challenge or enhance a strength in the areas of literacy and executive function including transitioning. Walk away with an understanding on the apps, tools and resources along with the learning skills that can support the learning variability you have in your classroom or home.
