  • For the underpinnings of our design solution, we turn to Ron Mace and universal design in architecture and product development. Ron Mace coined the term "universal design" to describe the concept of designing all products and the built environment to be aesthetic and usable to the greatest extent possible by everyone, regardless of their age, ability, or status in life. With universal design, it is assumed that individuals with varied needs will be accessing the building and alternative ways of entering and navigating are designed into the first drawing.

    9. 9. CAST, UDL, and brain networksRecognition networksGathering facts. How we identify andcategorize what we see, hear, and read.Identifying letters, words, or an authors style arerecognition tasks—the "what" of learning.Strategic networksPlanning and performing tasks. How weorganize and express our ideas. Writing anessay or solving a math problem are strategictasks—the "how" of learning.Affective networksHow students are engaged and motivated.How they are challenged, excited, orinterested. These are affective dimensions—the"why" of learning.
