Inspirations
leading to UDL
Architectural movement called "
Universal Design
"- as seen in video, the main idea was that a solution for
one
can be a benefit for
all
.

Universal Design
for Learning
applies the same ideology to the academic curriculum by providing students cognitive & physical access to the content in multiple ways.
3 UDL
Principles

What is
UDL
?

Universal Design for Learning
(UDL) provides a “blueprint” for designing a curriculum that may best meet the needs of modern, diverse learners. This is achieved through a very practical method of approaching teaching, learning and assessment as being flexible so as to best provide the content in a manner suited to each child (Howard, 2004).

A few goodies to get
YOU
started
Via the
UDL
Homeland (
www.cast.org/learningtools
):

iSolveIt
: innovative, research-based games that teach essential math reasoning and problem-solving skills.
Science Writer
: a web-based writing tool that scaffolds the process of composing science-class and lab reports.
Strategy Tutor
: supports students and teachers doing reading and research on the Internet

These tools are
apprpriate for all grades
in our school!!!

A plethora of
digital ideas
for
iPads
:

*Make “on-the-fly” individualization of curricula possible in practical, cost-effective ways

*Many of these technologies have built in supports, scaffolds, and challenges to help learners understand, navigate, and engage with their learning environment.

UDLCenter.org, 2014
Assistive Technology
For some students, the use of personal
assistive technologies
(i.e. an electric wheelchair, eyeglasses, or a cochlear implant) is essential for basic physical and sensory access to learning environments.

These students will need their assistive technologies, even during activities where other students may not use any technologies at all. Even in classrooms that are well equipped with UDL materials and methods,
their assistive technology neither precludes nor replaces the need for UDL overall.
A one-size-fits-all approach won't work with modern students who come to our classrooms in a variety of "academic shapes & sizes".

They need a
diverse curriculum
with
-learning goals
-methods
-materials
-assessments that work for
EVERYONE
!!

UDL is not a
lesson plan
it is a
program
.
Print Textbook
Potential Solutions
Use
digital
text where the size of the text can be adjusted; offer books on
tape
and text-to-speech
software

Class Profile
Several students have difficulty with reading, some because of visual impairments
Let's have an Example
www.scoop.it
www.scoop.it
www.wikispaces.com
A quick walk-a-bout shows all of the following ideas readily being incorporated into our lessons:
*organizers
*graphs
*clickers
*digital media
*podcasts/ blogs

*audio books/ readers
*manipulatives
*mnemonic song/ dance/ chant
*dioramas
*presentation/ literature circles
*
iPad carts
...
And so much more!!
Brain Research
shows it,
but do all
teachers
know it?

Our students cannot be reduced to simple labels like "smart' or "slow".

All students differ in their
abilities
and
NEEDS
.

Three interconnected
networks
form human intelligence:

-recognition (what?)
-strategic (why?)
-affective (how?)

Let's take a closer look at these networks.

The Diversity of UDL
If
we
ACCEPT
that
-the goal for every student is to learn, but
-not every child learns the same way


Then
we can all take steps to
build flexible bridges

into our lessons that allow every child to access our content.


Firchow, 2010
DON'T PANIC!
We really can work
SMARTER
, not
HARDER
.
But... doesn't this all just mean more
WORK
for us?
Remember:
UDL
is
-a program designed to help
ALL
students succeed by including flexible approaches to our content utilizing brain based research to plan for multiple methods of presentation, practice & assessment.

UDL
is
not
- "just more work."
Start small, gain speed and succeed!
