UDL Presentation UDL Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • UDL Presentation Universal Design for LearningH ay le y D ’Ange lo
  • What is UDL?Universal Design for Learning(UDL) is a research-basedframework for designing curricula—that is, educational goals,methods, materials, andassessments—that enable allindividuals to gain knowledge,skills, and enthusiasm for learning.This is accomplished bysimultaneously providing richsupports for learning and reducingbarriers to the curriculum, while MES studentsmaintaining high achievementstandards for all students.
  • Why was UDL created? UDL was created based upon research for how we can better reach children. Children of different ability levels, learning styles, cultures and backgrounds need varied instruction and assessment to maximize their learning potential.
  • Differentiation(sometimes referred to as differentiated learning) involves providing students with differentavenues to acquiring content; to processing, constructing, or making sense of ideas; and todeveloping teaching materials so that all students within a classroom can learn effectively,regardless of differences in ability.[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differentiated_instruction
  • UDLRecognition Networks:Present information andcontent in different ways(the "what" of learning)Strategic Networks:Differentiate the ways thatstudents can express whatthey know (the "how" oflearning)Affective Networks:Stimulate interest andmotivation for learning (the"why" of learning)
  • Neural Net works These three neural networks work together to coordinate even simple acts like signing a birthday card for a friend. Through recognition networks, we understand the concept of a birthday and identify the card, the pen, our hands as we write, and our signature. Through strategic networks, we set our goal of signing the card, form a plan for picking up the pen and moving it to produce our signature, monitor our progress, and make small course corrections, such as reducing the size of the letters if we begin to run out of space. Affective networks connect us to our feelings for our friend, motivate us to sign the card, and keep us on task.
  • 1 Principles of UDLProvide multiple andflexible methods ofpresentation to givestudents with diverselearning styles various waysof acquiring informationand knowledge.♣ Digital Storybooks can be used forstruggling readers.
  • 2 Principles of UDLProvide multiple andflexible means ofexpression to providediverse students withalternatives fordemonstrating what theyhave learned.♣ Create project-based assessmentswhere students get to decided how theywill demonstrate their mastery ofconcepts taught.
  • 3 Principles of UDLProvide multiple and flexiblemeans of engagement to tapinto diverse learnersinterests, challenge themappropriately, and motivatethem to learn.♣ Vary your teaching approach to reachlearners of every style. For example, provideinteractive presentations that have audio,visuals and allow students to work in a groupor individually.
  • Technology and UDL Technology is a key resource for differentiating instruction andassessment. By incorporating varying aspects of technology into your curriculum design, students will be able to engage in concepts on their own level. Technology opens the possibilities for reaching every student in a variety of ways. of ve ry he lpf ul techn olo gy to ols .Se e ht tp:/ ww.ne irtec .org/ud l/ fo r a lis t /w
  • TAKS achievementImpact at OUR CAMPUS INCREASES! Our campus has a high number of ESL, economically disadvantaged and special needs students. The academic needs of these students are very diverse as well as the background knowledge and home support. By using UDL, we can reach each student MES Students Rock! on his or her level.
  • 1 UDL Online Resourceshttp://www.neirtec.org/udl/ This website provides you with links for resources on curriculum design and online technology tools. I found the technology tools to be the most helpful. Many educators are willing to vary the way the curriculum is taught and utilize technology tools, but they do not know where to access the resources.
  • 2 UDL Online Resourceshttp://teachingeverystudent.blogspot.com/ This website provides teachers and students with the resources needed to create text to speech for anything and everything on any computer.There is a way to enable Macbooks (and Desktop computers) to read text out loud when highlighted. On a Macbook, there are instructions on how to enable this feature. Students can select any text and hit control+R for the text to be read aloud. Students are able to change the rate of speech, type of voice and inflection via the speech function in system preferences.
  • 3 UDL Online Resourceshttp://www.advocacyinstitute.org/UDL/ This website is the UDL Homepage. I found the classroom scenarios to be particularly helpful.
  • Every child is UNIQUE; therefore, our educational approach must be equally UNIQUE. References: Rose, D., & Meyer, A. (2002).
