Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
What is UDL? Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that gives all students equal opportunities to learn. -from the National Center On Universal Design for Learning
3 Principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Provide Multiple Means of Representation Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression Provide Multiple Means of Engagement
Principle 1-Provide Multiple Means of Representation
Use Visual Representations Use Auditory Representations Provide Options for Perception Representations should be adjustable for learner Use Tactile Representations
Highlight Clarify Use Simpler Words Preteach Digital Text Provide options for language, math expressions and symbols Make Connections Use Multiple Media Visuals Translate
Multiple Media Chunk Information Scaffold Activate Prior Knowledge Use Outlines Provide Options for Comprehension Advance Organizers Use Analogies & Metaphors Make cross-curricular connections Mnemonic Strategies
Principle 2-Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression
Provide alternatives for physically interacting Provide alternatives for physically responding Provide Options for Physical Action Custom Overlay for screens and keyboards Joystick Alternative Keyboards Touch Screens
Physical Manipulatives Differentiated Models Interactive Web Tools Provide Options for Expression and Communication Social Media Web Tools Calculators Multiple Media Differentiated Feedback
Principle 3-Provide Multiple Means of Engagement
Provide Checklists, & Guides Provide Models & Examples Provide Options for Executive Functions Short-Term Goals Long-Term Goals Think-Alouds
Learners make own academic and behavior goals Learners Participate in Creating Activities Provide Options for Recruiting Interest Create Supportive Classroom Environment Incorporate Class Discussions
Create Expectations Differentiate Activities Support Peer Interactions Provide Options for Sustaining Effort and Persistence Cooperative Learning Give Feedback Emphasize Effort
Use Activities that Support Feedback Encourage Self-Reflection Provide Options for Self-Regulation Encourage Personal Goals Use Differentiated Models
Technology and UDL The growing implementation of technology in the classroom has given students more support, assistance, and understanding in the classroom. Examples: Signed Stories Read With Me eBooks Online Thinking Tools WebAIM: Motor Disabilities, Assistive Technologies Book Builder Skype

Brain Research and Learning Differences Brain research helps educators understand how learners differ. It also helps us recognize our students’ strengths and weaknesses. Recognition Network Helps students recognize voices, faces, letters, words, and patterns Strategic Network Helps students to process their actions and plans Affective Network Helps students to recognize emotion and express emotion
Brain Research and Education As educators, we should meet the need of every student. Teaching a different lesson to each student may not feasible, but addressing all networks of the brain during one lesson is realistic. Recognition-Provide multiple ways to present key concepts Strategic-Provide multiple ways for students to express themselves Affective-Provide multiple means of engagement
Brain Research and Technology With technology, educators have many means of support to meet their students’ needs by addressing each of the 3 networks of the brain.
