While optimizing my site tonight, I learned a new method for making the posts accessible to wide a cross-section of people. I did this by adding two plug-ins, odiogo and wptouch, to wordpress. The result is a blog that can be easily read on a mobile device, be read out loud to a person on any device, or saved as an mp3 and taken offline. Admittedly, there is a high geek factor here but what is important is the underlying philosophy – How do we build learning environments that are accessible to all learners? How do we create systems that are adaptable to the needs of every individual within the system?
Try looking at your classroom from this perspective. I bet it looks quite different.
