Freedom of Choice by Design in Education

  1. 1. Freedom of Choice
  2. 2. American Public Education has a challenge…
  3. 3. we must educate students, all of them
  4. 4. Traditionally, we’ve done this by trying to… teach everyone the same way
  5. 5. Some of these we’ve supplemented with technology
  6. 6. What if we were all made to read the same book, use the same phone, watch the same movie, drive the same car, and work in the same job? Everyone would be miserable
  7. 7. Everyone is different. How do we reach everyone?
  8. 8. Enter Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  9. 9. UDL has three pillars 1. Multiple Means of Engagement
  10. 10. UDL has three pillars 2. Multiple Means of Representation 3. Multiple Means of Action and Expression
  11. 11. But every solution… Brings new challenges
  12. 12. UDL is widely known as a special education initiative. http://bit.ly/udlincommoncore
  13. 13. Perception is… UDL is too complicated and time consuming to implement
  14. 14. How do we get the message across to all educators?
  15. 15. The same way brands do… with a slogan Just Do It Think Different I’m Lovin’ It The Best A Man Can Get Finger Lickin’ Good
  16. 16. If we could boil UDL into a short, easy to remember phrase, what would it be?
  17. 17. When an educator goes to plan a lesson, what should they keep in mind?
  18. 18. Provide Options
  19. 19. Provide Options Provide Options Provide Options Provide Options Provide Options
  20. 20. This is what we chant from the rooftops, it’s what every educator needs to hear and feel.
  21. 21. As you travel back to schools and you share what you’ve learned, I hope it’s this… when designing & implementing lessons, provide options. Give students the freedom to make choices about how best they’d like to learn.
