  1. 1. Universal Design for Learning
  2. 2. Inspiration <ul><li>Universal Design began in the field of architecture. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It was a movement to change designs so that buildings worked for ALL people. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, in many early designs, buildings were only equipped with steps at entrances. Universal Design called for designs with steps AND ramps to accommodate all people. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Inspiration <ul><li>Universal Design for Learning was created with the same idea in mind: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning should be designed with ALL learners in mind. It should be flexible to accommodate all students and their unique abilities. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Principles of UDL <ul><li>Principle I: Provide Multiple Means of Representation </li></ul><ul><li>This principle basically means that the teacher should present information in different ways. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Principles of UDL <ul><li>Principle I Instructional Methods: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for perception: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>use a customizable display that allows for larger or smaller fonts </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for language and symbols: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>use pictures to describe vocabulary terms or graphs/charts to represent information </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for comprehension: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>activate background knowledge, highlight critical features, and provide ways to support memory and transfer </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Principles of UDL <ul><li>Principle II: Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression </li></ul><ul><li>This principle basically means that the teacher should allow students to express what they know in different ways. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Principles of UDL <ul><li>Principle II Instructional Methods: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for physical action: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>use interactive software that will meet the needs of all students (including those with physical disabilities) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for expressive skills and fluency: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>allow students to choose how they will express their learning </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for executive functions: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>scaffold skills for lower-level and higher-level learners </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Principles of UDL <ul><li>Principle III: Provide Multiple Means of Engagement </li></ul><ul><li>This principle basically means that the teacher should get the students interested in the content and motivated to learn. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Principles of UDL <ul><li>Principle III Instructional Methods: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for recruiting interest: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>use alternative ways to get students interested in content </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for sustaining effort and persistence: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>use alternative ways to keep students interested </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide options for self-regulation: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>use methods to teach students how to self-regulate their own learning </li></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Technology in UDL <ul><li>Traditional teaching methods (like printed textbooks and worksheets) do not provide flexibility in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology can provide flexibility for individual students. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, a teacher may wish to have one student view directions through text, one through pictures, and another verbally. Technology would allow this. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Potential Impact <ul><li>Implementing UDL into our classrooms would allow us to reach ALL students more effectively by minimizing personal barriers for each individual student, and therefore maximizing learning for every student. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Brain Research and UDL <ul><li>3 Major Networks of the Brain: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Recognition Network - how one recognizes information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategic Network - how one processes actions and plans </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Affective Network – how one processes emotions or evaluates patterns </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Brain Research and UDL <ul><li>Brain research shows that each person is unique in how he/she processes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>patterns (Recognition Network), </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>actions and plans (Strategic Network), </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and emotions (Affective Network). </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Brain Research Implications <ul><li>Flexibility in the classroom is the key to reaching all students: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Recognition Network – We need to provide multiple representations of information. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategic Network – We need to offer multiple means of actions and expression. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Affective Network – We need to provide multiple means of engagement. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>By doing each of these, we will reach all learners! </li></ul>
  15. 15. Brain Research and Technology <ul><li>Because technology provides the flexibility that students need, it is the key to personalizing learning for all students. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology can be used to provide the options that students need in each of the 3 networks. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Online Tools and Resources <ul><li>UDL Book Builder – This free tool allows teachers to develop digital books </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We could use this tool to recreate our textbooks into digital texts that allow students to explore them more fully. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Strategy Tutor – This free online tool makes Internet research easier and more efficient </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We could use this for a student who may have trouble researching on the Internet because of distractions like advertisements. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>UDL Lesson Builder – This free tool helps teachers meet the needs of all students </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We could use this to help us plan meaningful lessons that meet the needs of all students. </li></ul></ul>
