  • UDL Paradigm Shift: how UDL changes the way we think about students and education
    • Old Assumptions
    • Students who learn differently constitute a separate category.
    • New Assumptions
    • Students who learn differently fall along a continuum of learner differences.
    • Instructional adjustments need to be made for at risk students .
    • Learning is centered on a single text book.
    • The problem is with the student – remediate, remediate, remediate..
    • Instructional adjustments need to be made for all learners.
    • Learning materials are varied, digital .
    • The solution is within the curriculum. A flexible curriculum adapts to the needs of all students .
