This session will focus on the use of 21st Century learning skills (collaboration, product creation, critical thinking, and student centered learning) with a Fifth Grade American Indian Unit. The unit was planned with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in mind; therefore students were given the choice of products to showcase their learning, and were encouraged to choose according to their interests and/or skills to break down barriers to learning. The product choices included: writing a rap/song then recording it on Audacity, writing and video recording a skit on a flip camera, creating a board game, or documenting locations and facts on Google Earth. Once products were chosen and groups were formed, the tribe was assigned by the teacher thus creating challenging instruction rather than process. When products were complete, students shared them with the rest of their classmates. Last, projects were made available across three classes to allow for further student review. Students who chose technology oriented projects were familiar with its use, and were able to show off their skills. Students who did not choose the technology project created a “self-challenge” for the next project, thus raising the bar for themselves. A brief discussion about UDL as it relates to 21st Century Learning as well as samples.
