    • Combining Technology and Universal Design for Learning to Reach All Learners JessieMarie Flanagan - SL
    • Universal Design
      • An architectural movement in 1977 that focused on pre-planning any structural improvements so that they would be accessible to people with disabilities (wheelchairs)
    • Universal Design for Learning
      • "Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based framework for designing curricula—that has, educational goals, methods, materials, and assessments—that enable all individuals to gain knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for learning."
      • http://www.cast.org
    • Brain Networks
      • The recognition network is how the brain gathers facts and identifies the “what” of learning
      • The s trategic network is the planning network of the brain and is significant in identifying the “how” of learning
      • The third network is the affective network, which is the network of engagement and motivation and is a key identifier in the “why” of learning.  
    • UDL - Components
      • A flexible presentation of the general curriculum that can meet the needs of all students(CEC 2005)
      • Built in tools that promote access to the general curriculum for all students
    • UDL Crossroads
      • Differentiate Learning
      • Cooperative Groups
      • Community Based Instruction
      • Thematic Instruction
      • Alternative Instruction
      • Learning Strategies
      • Study Skills
      • Redundancy in Teaching (say it,
      • show it ,model it, different
      • forms of media
    • Universal Design for Learning vs. Assistive Technology Assistive Technology UDL AT Assistive Technology focuses on providing access for one particular student or group with a disability. Universal Design for Learning focuses on providing access to the general curriculum for all students regardless of abilities.
