A learner who has agency can self-advocate based on a good understanding of his or her strengths, challenges and personal interests. The goal of this workshop is to provide participants with a process and a set of practical tools that will guide every learner in developing independent learning skills through the application of the UDL Lens of Access, Engage and Express. In this workshop, 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 time dedicated to exploring tools and technologies. Using different provided learner profiles, participants will work in groups to brainstorm tools, apps and resources that can enhance a strength or support a challenge of the learner in accessing information, engaging with content or expressing what they know. At the conclusion of the workshop, each group will share and reflect from the perspective of the learner about the tools and skills they need to develop agency and advocates of their own learning. Walk away with skills, resources and tools to create a learner centered environment in your classroom!
