Universal Design for Learning Universal Design for Learning Presentation Transcript

  • Dawn Perry Walden University Susan Krauss EDUC-6714I-4 Reaching and Engaging All Learners Through Technology
  • Feeling Frustrated?
  • So Are We!
  • Universal Design for Learning Can Help!
    • Just as architects realized they must redesign buildings to allow access for all individuals; educators are coming to the understanding that we must redesign our curriculum to meet the needs of all individuals.
  • What is Universal Design for Learning?
    • “ Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn (CAST, 2011).”
    • “UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs (CAST, 2011).”
  • Three Principles of UDL
    • Visit www.udlcenter.org to find great information about UDL and guidelines for the following:
        • Representation
        • Engagement
        • Expression
  • Representation
    • Provide options for perception
    • Provide options for language, mathematical expressions, and symbols
    • Provide options for comprehension
  • Expression
    • Provide options for physical action
    • Provide options for expression and communication
    • Provide options for executive functions
  • Engagement
    • Provide options for recruiting interest
    • Provide options for sustaining effort and persistence
    • Provide options for self-regulation
  • Technology and UDL
    • Technology can be a very powerful tool to use to help with UDL.
    • Technology helps a teacher make adaptations to a lesson to meet the needs of all students.
    • Examples of helpful technology:
        • - iPad/iPod - Speech Recognition
        • - Touch Screen - Braille Readers
        • - Text to Speech - And Many More…
        • - Joysticks
  • Impact of UDL on Student Learning
    • Since UDL gets teachers thinking about students as individuals lessons will be made with the students strengths in mind.
    • Students’ learning style, disabilities, cultural differences, etc will be taken into consideration when planning therefore student’s will excel when material is presented to them and carried out in ways that make sense to them.
  • Brain Research
  • Differentiating Instruction
    • Teachers should modify:
      • Content
      • Process
      • Product
    • Instruction should be differentiated based on students:
      • Readiness level
      • Interest
      • Learning style
  • Technology, Brain Research and Instructional Implications
    • Using technology to support instruction makes it possible to design a very well laid out UDL lesson.
    • Technology makes it possible to make connections to the three networks of the brain and to touch on the three principles of UDL.
  • CAST Online Tools
    • There are many tools available to students and educators to help support UDL.
