Resource Remix

How might we make learning resources more inclusive and accessible?

In this 3-week activity, we will challenge our students to make learning more accessible. They will create a portfolio that contains two recreated or “remixed” versions of a learning resource.

At the end of the three weeks, the class will come together to try out each other’s resources and give each other peer feedback.

What will their project look like?

  • A portfolio that contains two different versions of a learning resource. The new versions should still align with the learning outcomes of the original one

  • Each version should consider the specific context of the target learner: ability, access, background, language, modality, etc

  • The portfolio should include the original learning resource, and a short write-up for each new version. The write-up should tell the story of how the student designed the new version. Who are the learners? What problem is this new version solving?

Project Exemplars from Students

Empathic Distress

by Ishi Nagales, Edtech 101

This project discusses how an individual develops empathy. It has stages and classifications, which were all listed down in an article. The student remixed it into a Google Slides presentation and an audio transcription of the topic.

Coping Skills: Being Mindful

by Risse Jimenez, Edtech 101

This project discusses how an individual develops empathy. It has stages and classifications, which were all listed down in an article. The student remixed it into a Google Slides presentation and an audio transcription of the topic.

What students say

Through the project, I realized that as future educators, it is vital that we exhaust all means to create material that all students may find interesting, productive, and accessible.

- Ishi, EdTech 101, Quezon City

I learned the importance and necessity of considering the needs of students and not just the needs of the majority... With these learnings, I hope to be a considerate and flexible teacher in the future.

Teachers Speak

I noticed that my students became deliberate when it comes to designing for particular learners: they empathize, they ask questions.
