  • UDL Technology Tools for Support Webinar Karen Brooks 2/8/11
  • What is UDL? http://www.cast.org/udl/index.html
    • It is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn.
    • UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.

    • Internet Tools
    • Internet based tools provide a great starting point to design UDL in the classroom. For example, have you considered letting struggling readers search by images instead of text?

Add text to speech tools and students can hear the information on the web pages read aloud. The entire Internet becomes a talking book!
