Digital Media Production to Support Literacy for Secondary Students with Diverse Learning Abilities
Leach, April Marie
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v9 n2 p30-44 2017
Producing digital media is a hands-on, inquiry-based mindful process that naturally embeds Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles into literacy instruction, providing options for learning and assessment for a wide array of students with diverse learning abilities. Video production learning experiences acknowledge the cognitive talents of some students labeled "disabled." For some, the discovery of personal abilities activated when learning through the production process may motivate deeper learning. Although challenges of access, quality of teacher preparation and assessment strategies represent significant challenges, digital media production learning experiences offer diverse learners a rich, socially interactive environment that models open communication and excitement for learning, and supports the scaffolding of comprehension skills for learning academic content.
