ONEder is pleased to offer a paid full-time summer internship to a selected college student interested in learning about assistive technology at a small, fast-paced ed tech start up. This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated student to gain hands-on experience! As our intern, you’ll wear many different hats. We are based in Newark, NJ, and we’ll give you the chance to learn all you ever wanted to know about education technology.
Instead of asking the learner to adapt to the information presented to them, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) presents information in ways that adapt to the learner. For students with learning and attention issues, UDL provides them with more than one way to interact with material. Now some people may ask, “isn’t UDL just for students with disabilities?”. The answer is “no”; all students can benefit from the supports that UDL provides. (more…)

Music Is Personal, Education Should Be Too
by Jason Gross
If you’re a teacher, you know that education can be as personal as music; that by creating a ‘playlist’ of activities and lessons tailored to each student’s individual needs, you enhance their learning experience, and leave them better equipped for success. As educators (and administrators) get more comfortable with edtech tools like ONEder, the process of creating a personalized learning experience for students is becoming both easier and faster. However, we all still have much to learn in this area. ONEder spoke with educators at some of the nation’s top music programs to get their advice on how we can make our classrooms as dynamic as their music programs.
