    64. 66. An Overview of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
    65. 67. UDL in Plain Language Think of a teacher who communicates clearly, sparks student interest, and cares about every student in his or her classroom.
    66. 68. Give that teacher the tools and encouragement to do all of these things better and then make this a systematic model for a school. This is UDL
    67. 69. UDL is… A set of research-based guidelines for curriculum development. Guidelines that focus on: Multiple means of representation— what is learned Multiple means of expression— how it’s learned Multiple means of engagement  -- why it’s learned
    68. 70. --Arne Duncan, US Secretary of Education Letter to Congress Introducing the National Educational Technology Plan http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010/letter-secretary “ The model of learning described in this plan calls for engaging and empowering personalized learning experiences for learners of all ages...It calls for using state-of-the-art technology and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) concepts to enable, motivate, and inspire all students to achieve, regardless of background, languages, or disabilities.” A National Imperative:  National Educational Technology Plan
    69. 71. In Higher Education UDL is also a significant part of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008, which is the reauthorized Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA).
    70. 72. NOTE: The difference between UDL and differentiation UDL works on curriculum from the ground up.  It's bigger, better, and more ambitious. Differentiation makes adaptations to the existing curriculum, without demanding the curriculum changes for all students.
