App4 murphyc Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Universal Design for Learning
    Chris Murphy
  • 2. The Inspiration for UDL
    The inspiration for UDL came from Architects that changed design to help buildings function for all people, disabled or not.
  • 3. Inspiration for Educators
    Universal Design for Learning allows educators to find alternative ways to differentiate instruction.
    What UDL does for students and teachers:
    Builds flexibility into the curriculum
    Endorses 21st Century Skills.
    Promotes all students to learn.
    Allows the material to change and not the students.
  • 4. 3 Principles of UDL
    Principle 1:
    To support recognition learning, provide multiple, flexible methods of presentation.
    Principle 2:
    To support strategic learning, provide multiple, flexible methods of expression and apprenticeship.
    Principle 3:
    To support affective learning, provide multiple, flexible options for engagement.
  • 5. Principles of UDL
    Examples of multiple representations:
    Verbal description of a chart
    Tactile graphic representation
    E-text version read by a computer
  • 6. Role of Technology
    The role of technology in UDL has allowed teachers to adapt to the student.
    Using traditional methods do not provide other ways to look at the problems.
    Technology offers flexible ways to display the information.
  • 7. UDL Impact on Students
    Using Universal Design for Learning allows for students in the classroom to learn new ways of general educational curriculum through the use of technology.
  • 8. Brain Research and UDL
    Networks of the Brain
    Recognition Network
    Pattern Processing
    Strategic Network
    Processes actions and plans
    Affective Network
    Processes emotions; evaluates patterns
  • 9. Brain Research and UDL
    Students use these 3 networks in different ways and every student is different in processing information. Universal Design for Learning allows to identify the strengths and weaknesses in students.
