    • Making the material relevant to the students’ lives
  • 11. Technology in UDL
    • Technology allows us to implement UDL using a wide variety of sources.
    • Technology tools help to support the individualization necessary to engage all different types of learners ( http://www.cast.org/research/udl/index.html )
  • 12. Impact of UDL at our School
    • Will help us reach our diverse students population
    • Makes our lesson more relevant to our students
    • Gives students more options to learn and display their knowledge of material
  • 13. Brain Research on UDL
    • The brain is broken up into three different networks
      • Recognition Networks
      • Strategic Networks
      • Affective Networks

  • 14. Recognition Networks
    • This network identifies information or recognizes it and can use it later (Rose, D., & Meyer, A., 2002).

  • 15. Strategic Network
    • This network plans, executes, and monitors what is important (Rose, D., & Meyer, A., 2002).

  • 16. Affective Networks
    • This network evaluates and set priorities of the learning process (Rose, D., & Meyer, A., 2002).

  • 17. How UDL Supports Diversity
    • UDL is designed so that all learning styles can be reached
    • Technology is an important tool that allows access to the different networks of the brain and will help us reach all students
  • 18. CAST Resources
    • UDL Book Builder
    • UDL Curriculum Self Check
    • Teaching Every Student
  • 19. UDL Book Builder
    • This resource helps teachers create digital books to support reading instruction literacy learning
    • This tool will help our school since we have many students who read below grade level.
  • 20. UDL Curriculum Self Check
    • This resource helps teachers add flexibility into their lessons so they can reach and engage all students
    • This resources will help our school because it will give us a guideline to check our lessons to make sure they are meeting the UDL standards
  • 21. Teaching Every Student
    • This resource explains the UDL and how to implement it in the classroom. It has examples of lessons to help support teachers
    • This resource will help our school because it will give our teachers examples and tools to implement the UDL to make sure we reach all of our students
  • 22. Resources
    • Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST),(2010) Universial Design for Learning.
