  1. 1. Universal Design for Learning Classroom Technology Planning
  2. 2. Universal Design for Learning UDL for Inclusion <ul><li>Multiple means of representation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to give learners various ways of acquiring information and knowledge </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple means of action and expression </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to provide learners alternatives for demonstrating what they know </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple means of engagement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to tap into learners' interests </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>offer appropriate challenges </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>increase motivation </li></ul></ul>CAST
  3. 3. Universal Design for Learning UDL with Technology <ul><li>Multiple means of representation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How will this technology help learners acquire information and knowledge? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple means of action and expression </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How will this technology provide alternative ways for students to show what they know ? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple means of engagement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How will this technology tap into learners' interests, challenge students, and increase motivation? </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. UDL Changes Teaching <ul><li>Children with disabilities fall along a continuum of learner differences rather than constituting a separate category. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers adjust for learner differences for ALL children , not just those with disabilities </li></ul><ul><li>Curriculum materials should be varied and diverse </li></ul><ul><ul><li>including digital and online resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>not merely a single resource </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Teachers allow for flexibility to accommodate learner differences rather than set curriculum </li></ul>
  5. 5. National Education Technology Plan (NETP) <ul><li>U.S. Department of Education National Educational Technology Plan </li></ul><ul><ul><li>looking at how to improve education through the innovative use of technology (2010) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide a vision for how information and communication technologies can help transform American education. </li></ul><ul><li>Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is part of the National Education Technology Plan </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010 </li></ul>
  6. 6. Learning: Engage and Empower <ul><li>http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010/learning-engage-and-empower </li></ul>Serving the Underserved Individualization Differentiation Personalization
  7. 7. Learning and Technology <ul><li>What do people need to learn? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How can technology help meet changing goals of education? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How do people learn? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How does the use of technology support learning? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Who needs to learn? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How can technology support learning for ALL students including those with diverse needs? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Where and when do we learn? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How does technology enable us to learn anywhere? Anytime? </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Learning: Engage and Empower <ul><li>http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010/learning-engage-and-empower </li></ul><ul><li>Provide multiple and flexible methods of presentation of information and knowledge. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Examples include digital books, specialized software and websites, text-to-speech applications, and screen readers. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide multiple and flexible means of expression with alternatives for students to demonstrate what they have learned. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Examples include online concept mapping and speech-to-text programs. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Learning: Engage and Empower <ul><li>http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010/learning-engage-and-empower </li></ul><ul><li>Provide multiple and flexible means of engagement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>tap into diverse learners' interests </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>challenge them appropriately </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>motivate them to learn </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Examples include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>choices among different scenarios or content for learning the same competency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>opportunities for increased collaboration or scaffolding. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Assessment and Technology <ul><li>How can technology help in assessment? </li></ul><ul><li>How can technology measure what matters (performance)? </li></ul><ul><li>How can technology provide the information that enables continuous improvement processes at all levels of the education system. </li></ul><ul><li>How can technology provides access to data for students, teachers, parents, administrators? </li></ul>
  11. 11. Assessment: Measure What Matters <ul><li>http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010/assessment-measure-what-matters </li></ul><ul><li>Technology allows the development of assessments using Universal Design for Learning principles </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Makes assessments more accessible, effective, and valid for students with greater diversity in terms of disability and English language capability </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Technology allows for presentation and assessment using alternative representations of the same concept or skill </li></ul><ul><li>Technology can accommodate various student disabilities and strengths. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Assessment: Measure What Matters <ul><li>http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010/assessment-measure-what-matters </li></ul><ul><li>Technology provides fair assessment. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Presenting information through multiple modalities enlarges the proportion of the population that can be assessed fairly. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides a record of all the steps taken to make each assessment item accessible and fair for the broadest number of students. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Assistive technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Makes it possible for students who have disabilities that require special interfaces to interact with digital resources to demonstrate what they know and can do in ways that would be impossible with standard print-based assessments. </li></ul></ul>
