Remixing the Curriculum : The Teacher's Guide to Technology in the Classroom Paperback
Remixing the Curriculum offers educators a way to rethink traditional curricular approaches through a "curricular remix," a concept in which a curriculum becomes different from its original form, retaining its basic foundational elements, but experiencing a metamorphosis to create a new version.
Remixing the Curriculum suggests that the way to develop curriculum to maximize student access and engagement is to employ essential elements of traditional pedagogy, but infuse it with technology to create new features through the X Framework (XFW).
XFW capitalizes on four essential features of educators' practice and learning: Technology Fitness, in which a teacher self-evaluates their comfort level using technology; Proactive Teaching, which front-loads the planning and preparation for instruction to prior to implementation; Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a set of principles which guide the conditions for learning, including flexible learning environments to accommodate individual learning differences; and Assistive Technology, technology to improve the capabilities of students with disabilities.
At the intersection of these four quadrants is X, which serves as a fulcrum for access to the curriculum.
