Universal design for learning (udl)

  1. 1. Universal Design for Learning (UDL)<br />
  2. 2. What is UDL?<br />Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that gives all students equal opportunities to learn.<br />-from the National Center On Universal Design for Learning<br />
  3. 3. 3 Principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)<br />Provide Multiple Means of Representation<br />Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression<br />Provide Multiple Means of Engagement<br />
  4. 4. Principle 1-Provide Multiple Means of Representation<br />
  5. 5. Use Visual Representations<br />Use Auditory Representations<br />Provide Options for Perception<br />Representations should be adjustable for learner<br />Use Tactile<br />Representations<br />
  6. 6. Highlight<br />Clarify<br />Use Simpler Words<br />Preteach<br />Digital Text<br />Provide options for language, math expressions and symbols<br />Make Connections<br />Use Multiple Media<br />Visuals<br />Translate<br />
  7. 7. Multiple Media<br />Chunk Information<br />Scaffold<br />Activate Prior Knowledge<br />Use<br />Outlines<br />Provide Options for Comprehension<br />Advance Organizers<br />Use Analogies & Metaphors<br />Make cross-curricular connections<br />Mnemonic Strategies<br />
  8. 8. Principle 2-Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression<br />
  9. 9. Provide alternatives for physically interacting<br />Provide alternatives <br />for physically responding<br />Provide Options for Physical Action<br />Custom Overlay for screens and keyboards<br />Joystick<br />Alternative <br />Keyboards<br />Touch Screens<br />
  10. 10. Physical<br />Manipulatives<br />Differentiated Models<br />Interactive<br />Web Tools<br />Provide Options for Expression and Communication<br />Social Media Web Tools<br />Calculators<br />Multiple Media<br />Differentiated Feedback<br />
  11. 11. Principle 3-Provide Multiple Means of Engagement<br />
  12. 12. Provide Checklists, & Guides<br />Provide Models & Examples<br />Provide Options for Executive Functions<br />Short-Term Goals<br />Long-Term Goals<br />Think-Alouds<br />
  13. 13. Learners make own academic and behavior goals<br />Learners Participate in Creating Activities<br />Provide Options for <br />Recruiting Interest<br />Create Supportive<br />Classroom Environment<br />Incorporate Class Discussions<br />
  14. 14. Create Expectations<br />Differentiate Activities<br />Support Peer Interactions<br />Provide Options for Sustaining Effort and Persistence<br />Cooperative Learning<br />Give Feedback<br />Emphasize <br />Effort<br />
  15. 15. Use Activities that Support Feedback<br />Encourage Self-Reflection<br />Provide Options for <br />Self-Regulation<br />Encourage Personal Goals<br />Use Differentiated Models<br />
  16. 16. Technology and UDL<br />The growing implementation of technology in the classroom has given students more support, assistance, and understanding in the classroom.<br />Examples:<br />Signed Stories<br />Read With Me eBooks<br />Online Thinking Tools<br />WebAIM: Motor Disabilities, Assistive Technologies<br />Book Builder<br />Skype<br />
  17. 17. UDL and Barkley<br />Students at Barkley Elementary can greatly <br />benefit from UDL.<br />Webspiration-<br />Helps all students organize their thoughts through graphic organizers.<br />
  18. 18. UDL and Barkley<br />Students at Barkley Elementary can greatly <br />benefit from UDL.<br />Voki-Customized avatar will read aloud to ESL students and struggling readers.<br />
  19. 19. UDL and Barkley<br />Students at Barkley Elementary can greatly <br />benefit from UDL.<br />Starfall-This website contains activities that assist students in improving their decoding skills.<br />
  20. 20. UDL and Barkley<br />Students at Barkley Elementary can greatly <br />benefit from UDL.<br />CAST’s UDL Editions-Digital media can challenge and enrich all learners.<br />
  21. 21. Brain Research and Learning Differences<br />Brain research helps educators understand how learners differ. It also helps us recognize our students’ strengths and weaknesses.<br />Recognition Network<br />Helps students recognize voices, faces, letters, words, and patterns<br />Strategic Network<br />Helps students to process their actions and plans<br />Affective Network<br />Helps students to recognize emotion and express emotion<br />
  22. 22. Brain Research and Education<br />As educators, we should meet the need of every student.<br />Teaching a different lesson to each student may not feasible, but addressing all networks of the brain during one lesson is realistic.<br />Recognition-Provide multiple ways to present key concepts<br />Strategic-Provide multiple ways for students to express themselves<br />Affective-Provide multiple means of engagement<br />
  23. 23. Brain Research and Technology<br />With technology, educators have many means of support to meet their students’ needs by addressing each of the 3 networks of the brain.<br />
  24. 24. Brain Research, Technology and Barkley…Oh My!!<br />CAST UDL Lesson Builder-Teachers at Barkley Elementary can create lessons with flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments that support learning for all students.<br />http://lessonbuilder.cast.org/<br />
  25. 25. Brain Research, Technology and Barkley…Oh My!!<br />UDL Solutions Finder-Supports teachers at Barkley Elementary to meet students’ needs with activities that address each brain network.<br />http://www.cast.org/teachingeverystudent/tools/udlsolutionsfinder.cfm<br />
  26. 26. Brain Research, Technology and Barkley…Oh My!!<br />UDL Class Profile Maker-Helps teachers at Barkley Elementary create a profile for each student using the 3 brain networks, and UDL teaching.<br />http://www.cast.org/teachingeverystudent/tools/classprofile.cfm<br />
