  1. 1. Universal Design for Learning Jordan White Walden University Prof. Evelyn Thompson Reaching and Engaging all Learners through Technology November 28th , 2010
  2. 2. What is UDL? • Universal Design for Learning is an approach with its roots in architecture that helps create a curriculum in which everyone can succeed. • Just as building are to be used and accessed by the maximum number of people, UDL is trying to allow for the maximum amount of learners. http://www.cast.org/research/udl/index.html
  3. 3. Inspirations for UDL Language selection Braille for the seeing impaired Audio jacks for the hearing impaired This ATM is outfitted with many design features so the most amount of people can use it effectively.
  4. 4. Presentation Expression Engagement 3 Principles of UDL3 Principles of UDL
  5. 5. Presentation • The presentation portion of UDL is how students receive the lesson or information. Students can read the information individually. Students can explore websites in order to familiarize themselves. Lecture or presentation modes with an instructor and pictures. A film or movie could be used to present information to students.
  6. 6. Expression • This principle offers students many output modes to display the knowledge gained. Podcasting offers an outlet for learners to describe their learning. Students can create a website to show and exhibit their knowledge. Collaborative learning can be shown with the implementation of a wiki.
  7. 7. Engagement • Students are engaged and engrossed by the material and lesson to motivate each student to do their best to learn.
  8. 8. Technology and UDL • Technology facilitates UDL because it offers so many avenues for students to absorb and display their knowledge. • For example, students can express their knowledge in many different ways using technology.
  9. 9. Potential Impact at my School • UDL offers multiple types of assessments • UDL creates differentiation for students to absorb and display knowledge • UDL creates projects that have more meaning to students • UDL will help learners who struggle with traditional instruction
  10. 10. Brain Research and UDL • The brain has three distinct sets of networks that must work in conjunction in order for learning to take place. Recognition Strategic Affective
  11. 11. Recognition • This network of the brain is responsible for identifying and recalling images or information. (Rose, D., & Meyer, A., 2002) Taken from CAST website
  12. 12. Strategic • This network of the brain is specific to carrying out the process that is related to the learning. (Rose, D., & Meyer, A., 2002) Taken from CAST website
  13. 13. Affective • This network of the brain is responsible for sequencing material. (Rose, D., & Meyer, A., 2002) Taken from CAST website
  14. 14. How does UDL support Cultural Diversity? • UDL will allow students of all learning and expression types to be reached educationally. • More students will be able to succeed at a higher level and have a more profound impact.
  15. 15. CAST Tools • UDL Lesson Builder • Teaching Every Student
  16. 16. How can my school use it? • My school can adopt this model to easily assist more students with learning that is more fun and relevant to each student.
