  • I thought the wordle on the closing slide was a great touch. It would be interesting to start a live presentation with the wordle and ask your audience to discuss what they think the premise of UDL is based upon the wordle.

  1. 1.  It’s an instructional approach that opens up learning opportunities for ALL students.
  2. 2. “The concept ofUDL was inspired by  Examples of UDLthe universal design Inspiration~movement inarchitecture. Thismovement calls forthe design ofstructures thatanticipate theneeds of individualswith disabilities andaccommodatethese needs fromthe outset” (Hall,Strangman, &Meyer, 2011).
  3. 3.  Builds maximum flexibility into the curriculum. Gives every students the opportunity to learn (Laureate Education, Inc., 2009).
  4. 4.  Principle I: Provide Multiple Means of Representation (the “what” of learning) Principle II: Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression (the “how” of learning) Principle III: Provide Multiple Means of Engagement (the “why” of learning) (CAST, 2011)
  5. 5.  Provide information to students utilizing the different learning modalities. Provide mnemonic devices. Provide options for students to apply meaning to a concept. Present information through different perceptions.
  6. 6.  Provide material in which all students can interact with. Provide different way for response, selection, and composition. Set long term goals and provide opportunities for everyone to reach those goals. Provide students opportunities to become owners of their own learning.
  7. 7.  Provide multiple opportunities to actively engage students. Provide meaning to the curriculum where students can activate prior knowledge to create a connection with the content.
  8. 8.  Utilizing technology in the classroom provides meaningful and engaging instruction in the classroom. It offers flexibility to display and mark content (Laureate Education, Inc., 2009). Technology provides authentic learning experience that meets all learning modalities.
  9. 9.  Electronic versions of textbooks Captioned/narrated video Spell check and Thesaurus Talking dialogue and voice recognition Computer sources such as Compass Learning, V-Math Voyager, Study Island, BrainPop, United Streaming, and Pearson Math. Kidspiration/Inspiration for organizing content
  10. 10. Utilizing UDL in theclassrooms within myschool will provide ameaningful learningexperience. Ifteachers in mybuilding use UDL asway to create lessons,students will bechallenged, activelyengaged, andbecomeacademicallysuccessful. This will allbe due to the ideathat students arelearning information Creates our futurethrough their ownlearning modality.
  11. 11. The brain is onebig integratednetwork, but forconvenience weonly think of threedifferent groupingwith in thatnetwork:1. Recognition2. Strategic3. Affective
  12. 12. Networks in the brain that enable us to identifyand understand information, ideas, andconcepts; networks specialized to sense andassign meaning to patterns we see, hear, taste,touch, and smell.Allows us to make connections with the visual,auditory, and kinesthetic learner. This is wherewe must provide multiple opportunities for kidsto take in and process information.It’s how we gather what we see, hear, andread. (Alblett, Bellizzi, Byers, Cove, Dobrusin,Hanke, Koopmans, Newcomb, & Snitzer, 2005)Examples of Recognition Networks are :Identify letters, words, pictures, tastes, smells,roads, content, utilize graphic organizers,multimedia texts,
  13. 13. The axons leave and go out to themuscles to process actions andplans. This is where students need tobe able have different outlets toexpress themselves.Examples of the Strategic Networkare:Running, shooting baskets, makingplans to design something, write anessay, work out a math problem,conducting an experiment using thescientific method.
  14. 14. Focuses on how to get the learnerengaged and remain motivated. It isabout the emotional aspect and beingable to evaluate their learning process.Students need to be provided withdifferent avenues to be engaged in thecurriculum.Examples of the Affective Network are:Challenge studentsGet them excited about learningProvide interest that will motivate them towant to learn.
  15. 15. “Technology, in particular digital media, makes UDL implementation practicaland achievable in a diverse classroom. Digital materials make it possible forthe same material to be flexibly presented and accessed—even adapted ona student-to-student basis” (Hall, Strangman, & Meyer, 2011)
  16. 16. website is a great source to create lessons thatdifferentiate instruction and meet the needs of everylearner. website allows teachers to create their own bookdigitally. Teachers can edit and create their veryown reading material and it can be utilized for agesthree and up. This would be a wonderful tool at theelementary school level in which I work. a 5th grade math and science teacher, I conductquite a bit of research in my classroom. This websitewill enable my students to read, research, collect,and comprehend the information that sometimesmay overwhelm them better
