UDLUniversal Design for Learning Created by: Julie Budd Dr. Derby EDUC 67141-1
Universal Design for Learning Dr. Rose explained UDL was first developed to teacharchitects better ways to design their buildings so ALLpeople would be able to enter their buildings.
Once the concept was understood…•Ramps and elevators now replace stairs so that all people can enter buildings andvisit every floor.•Blind people can now read remotes in Braille and hear sound signals at crosswalks.•Closed caption T.V. helps people read so they can enjoy T.V.
The Three Principles of UDL: 1. Provide Multiple and Flexible Means of Representation 2. Provide Multiple and Flexible Means of Action & Expression 3. Provide Multiple and Flexible Means of Engagement
Examples of Multiple Means of Representations Perception Comprehension Language Provide same Point out key ideas Provide options for information through Highlight key ideas & language to be different modalities: Relationships understood (Using all of the 5 Activate Background Storyboards Senses) Knowledge Comics Music Support memory Define vocabulary Hands-on activities Illustrate key concepts Visual Organizers Clarify syntax and Relating to Smells structure Relating to Taste

Central Role of Technology in UDL Examples: Technology provides flexibility and collaboration of all students. VOICE RECOGNITION Technology helps customize VIDEO curriculum for all students.

How does UDL support cultural, ethnic, linguistic, and academic diversity?Use a variety of technology tosupport diverse learnersDesigned so all students can learnUse multimedia tools so that allraces, genders, and culturalbackgrounds can learn
Central Role ofUDL in Technology Key to UDL is in the planning. Technology + UDL principles = Learning for ALL students Meet student needs by: Providing different ways to show information Provide choices in ways students demonstrate their knowledge Engage students Include content choices and lesson choices
