UDL Presentation

  1. 1. UDL Presentation Elizabeth Rogus Walden University January 30, 2011
  2. 2. <ul><li>Imagine that you are trying to get into a building and you had to get up a set of stairs. </li></ul><ul><li>Now imagine that you are in a wheelchair. </li></ul><ul><li>This is much more difficult. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Ramps Were Created So That- <ul><li>All people would have the same opportunities. </li></ul><ul><li>Buildings would be accessible for all. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Televisions are another example - <ul><li>Televisions have sound for individuals that have hearing. </li></ul><ul><li>Captions are available for those individuals that cannot hear. </li></ul>
  5. 5. This relates to the classroom & how the Universal Design for Learning was created. <ul><li>Each student learns differently. </li></ul><ul><li>All students need to have an opportunity to learn. </li></ul><ul><li>All students need to be successful. </li></ul>
  6. 6. There are 3 principles of UDL - <ul><li>#1 – Present information in multiple ways. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>In the classroom, this means… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Graphic organizers </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Books online that can be changed to meet individual needs (text, sound) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Drawing or use of manipulatives </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Acting concepts out </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Activate background knowledge </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  7. 7. There are 3 principles of UDL - <ul><li>#2 – Provide students with ways to express their learning. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>In the classroom, this means… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Letting students show what they know in different ways. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Let students record their audio instead of having them write. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Creating something using drawings, manipulatives, or writing as some examples. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. There are 3 principles of UDL – <ul><li>#3 – Provide multiple ways to engage students. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>In the classroom, this means… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Give students choices </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Have activities with varying levels of difficulty </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Have students complete work in different ways (in groups/individually). </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Help students to create goals and rewards. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. How can technology aid in incorporating UDL into the classroom? <ul><li>We have many types of technology in our district and there are many tools online that will help us to implement UDL. </li></ul><ul><li>EXAMPLES: </li></ul><ul><li>VoiceThread lets students choose to share learning with both writing and speaking. </li></ul><ul><li>A SmartBoard lets students highlight information, manipulate information, and show information in different ways. </li></ul><ul><li>eBooks online so students can use audio and text for reading. </li></ul><ul><li>UDL Technology Toolkit: http:// udltechtoolkit.wikispaces.com </li></ul>
  10. 10. How does UDL relate to brain research? <ul><li>Research found that there are 3 learning networks in the brain. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Recognition network – the “what” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Strategic network – the “how” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Affective network – the “why” </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Recognition Network <ul><li>“How we gather facts and categorize what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters, words, or an author's style are recognition tasks” (Center for Applied Special Technology, 1999-2010). </li></ul><ul><li>This relates to the principle of presenting information in multiple ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Students need to hear, see and learn information in different ways. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Strategic Network <ul><li>“Planning and performing tasks. How we organize and express our ideas. Writing an essay or solving a math problem are strategic tasks” (Center for Applied Special Technology, 1999-2010). </li></ul><ul><li>This relates to the principle of providing students with ways to express their learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Students need to complete tasks or “do” things in different ways. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Affective Network <ul><li>“How learners get engaged and stay motivated. How they are challenged, excited, or interested. These are affective dimensions” (Center for Applied Special Technology, 1999-2010). </li></ul><ul><li>This relates to the principle of providing multiple ways to engage students. </li></ul><ul><li>Students need to learn in ways that are exciting or motivating to them. </li></ul>
  14. 14. What are the benefits of incorporating technology and UDL into the classroom and into our district? <ul><li>It gives all students an opportunity to learn. </li></ul><ul><li>It will help meet the needs of our diverse learners. </li></ul><ul><li>It keeps students engaged and motivated. </li></ul>
  15. 15. How does UDL reach all learners? <ul><li>Each student learns differently. </li></ul><ul><li>UDL helps educators think about students’ differences in learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators can then create lessons and units to meet all learning styles, interests, and diverse needs. Each student will be supported. </li></ul>
  16. 16. The Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) <ul><li>“ CAST is a nonprofit research and development organization that works to expand learning opportunities for all individuals, especially those with disabilities, through Universal Design for Learning” (Center for Applied Special Technology, 1999-2010). </li></ul><ul><li>Has many resources that are available for educators to help incorporate UDL and technology into the classroom. </li></ul>
  17. 17. www.cast.org RESOURCES UDL Class Profile Maker <ul><li>This tool gives educators a table to help them organize information about students. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers can fill in strengths that students have within the 3 principles and things that the students can work on. </li></ul><ul><li>This can help educators plan lessons and units based on students needs and interests. </li></ul>
  18. 18. www.cast.org RESOURCES UDL Lesson Builder <ul><li>This website has examples of lesson plans for multiple grade levels which incorporate the UDL principles. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators can create lesson plans using the models to help them. </li></ul>
  19. 19. www.cast.org RESOURCES UDL Book Builder <ul><li>This resource is a way to create online books for students to read. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers can create books centered around different topics and the books can be shared. </li></ul><ul><li>Text and audio can be added to the stories for a variety of students’ needs. </li></ul>
