Universal Design for Learning

What is UDL?
UDL stands for Universal Design for learning which is a set of principles for curriculum development that gives all individuals equal opportunities to learn. It has three basic learning guidelines that deal with engagement, representation and action and expression.
Why UDL?
It allows individuals to bring a variety of skills, needs and interests into their learning. These differences are varied and unique for each person. It also allows three primary brain networks to work together consisting of engagements, representation and action and expression. Each network effects a different area of the brain that is highlighted on their respective slide.
This picture is a representation of what a typical classroom would look like. It does not allow students to show their abilities or cater to any other needs they may have.
This provides multiple means of representations. This allows for resourceful, knowledge learners. It addresses the "what" of learning.
This adresses the "why" of learning. How learners get engaged and stay motivated. How they are challenged, excited, or interested. These are affective dimensions.

Action and Expression
Planning and performing tasks. How we organize and express our ideas. Writing an essay or solving a math problem are strategic tasks. This is the "how" of learning.

How to implement UDL
School Officials
Student Benefits
Support the development of a UDL leadership team that will spearhead implementing UDL into the school day.
Conduct "UDL walks" to help look for good uses of instructional technology
Encourage peer coaching

School Officials Cont.
Support before and after school training, with 15 minute tech tips at staff meeting, with technology showcases every few months.
Teach strategies in the context of general ed curriculum themes not only the software
Expose teachers to the power of the internet to obtain digital material
Show teachers how to use technology applications that are available
Begin with a manageable curriculum unit
Be clear on the goals of the unit and how it will be measured
Determine what the instructional barriers are for a range of students
Determine what tools would help to make more flexible methods, materials and assessments
Build a personal and school inventory of digital materials
Attend in-school and out-of-school training on the tools available at your school
UDL allows schools to prepare students for the future. Technology is continuously evolving therefore so should education.
Technology will keep students engaged, and e-textbooks are more updated and are also more visually appealing.
Caters to each students unique needs and allows them to activate different network systems in the brain.
Potential Barriers
Funding- teachers can apply for grants and also the district. Look into possible budget arrangement for upcoming years.
School involvement- hold informational meetings & give tours of a UDL school.
Parent involvement- Send out information and resources to read. Also hold a tour for parents to see how students are involved in learning while using the technology.
This picture represents how teachers would adapt their lesson plans around student struggles that are identified before the lesson.
